Bébinn is an early Irish name applied to a number of related and unrelated figures in Irish mythology. In some sources Bébhinn is a goddess associated with birth and the sister of the river-goddess, Boann. Bébinn is also described as being an underworld goddess in both Irish and Welsh mythology, inhabiting the Irish underworld Mag Mell and the Welsh Annwn, although it is unknown which is the original source. The name Bébinn seems to be a combination between medieval forms of the Irish Gaelic word "bean" (woman), and the adjective "binn" (melodious), literally translating to "melodious woman". This name is also linked to the Latin “vīvus” (live), imperial Latin “vīvĭanus” which means “he has life”. However may also be a derivative of the female Roman cognomen Vibianus, probably of Etruscan origin but unknown meaning.
