[meed] /mid/

a member of an Indo-European people of West Iranian speech who established an empire in SW Asia in the 7th and 6th centuries bc

inhabitant of ancient Media, late 14c., from Latin Medus, from Greek Medos “Mede,” from the indigenous people-name Medes, said to be from the name of their first king (Medos).

(Heb. Madai), a Median or inhabitant of Media (Dan. 11:1). In Gen. 10:2 the Hebrew word occurs in the list of the sons of Japheth. But probably this is an ethnic and not a personal name, and denotes simply the Medes as descended from Japheth.
