  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Eden 
  delight.  (1.)  The  garden  in  which  our  first  parents  dewlt  (Gen. 
  2:8-17).  No  geographical  question  has  been  so  much  discussed  as 
  that  bearing  on  its  site.  It  has  been  placed  in  Armenia,  in  the 
  region  west  of  the  Caspian  Sea,  in  Media,  near  Damascus,  in 
  Palestine,  in  Southern  Arabia,  and  in  Babylonia.  The  site  must 
  undoubtedly  be  sought  for  somewhere  along  the  course  of  the 
  great  streams  the  Tigris  and  the  Euphrates  of  Western  Asia,  in 
  "the  land  of  Shinar"  or  Babylonia.  The  region  from  about  lat.  33 
  degrees  30'  to  lat.  31  degrees,  which  is  a  very  rich  and  fertile 
  tract,  has  been  by  the  most  competent  authorities  agreed  on  as 
  the  probable  site  of  Eden.  "It  is  a  region  where  streams  abound, 
  where  they  divide  and  re-unite,  where  alone  in  the  Mesopotamian 
  tract  can  be  found  the  phenomenon  of  a  single  river  parting  into 
  four  arms,  each  of  which  is  or  has  been  a  river  of  consequence." 
 
  Among  almost  all  nations  there  are  traditions  of  the  primitive 
  innocence  of  our  race  in  the  garden  of  Eden.  This  was  the 
  "golden  age"  to  which  the  Greeks  looked  back  Men  then  lived  a 
  "life  free  from  care  and  without  labour  and  sorrow.  Old  age  was 
  unknown;  the  body  never  lost  its  vigour;  existence  was  a 
  perpetual  feast  without  a  taint  of  evil.  The  earth  brought  forth 
  spontaneously  all  things  that  were  good  in  profuse  abundance." 
 
  (2.)  One  of  the  markets  whence  the  merchants  of  Tyre  obtained 
  richly  embroidered  stuffs  (Ezek.  27:23);  the  same  probably,  as 
  that  mentioned  in  2  Kings  19:12,  and  Isa.  37:12,  as  the  name  of 
  a  region  conquered  by  the  Assyrians. 
 
  (3.)  Son  of  Joah,  and  one  of  the  Levites  who  assisted  in 
  reforming  the  public  worship  of  the  sanctuary  in  the  time  of 
  Hezekiah  (2  Chr.  29:12). 
 
 
  From  Hitchcock's  Bible  Names  Dictionary  (late  1800's)  [hitchcock]: 
 
  Eden,  pleasure;  delight
