me'-dan (medhan, "strife"):

One of the sons of Abraham by Keturah (Genesis 25:2; 1 Chronicles 1:32). The tribe and its place remain unidentified, and the conjecture that the name may be connected with the Midianites is unlikely from the fact that in the list of the sons of Abraham and Keturah Midian is mentioned alongside of Medan.
