Etymology

Traditionally, scholars favored deriving the name "Eden" from the Akkadian edinnu, derived from a Sumerian word edin meaning "plain" or "steppe". Also, word Eden is possibly related to an Aramaic root word meaning "fruitful, well-watered." Perhaps from Ugaritic base 'dn and meaning "a place that is well-watered throughout".
