In Irish mythology, Abhean (pronounced ay-veen) son of Bec-Felmas was a poet of the Tuatha Dé Danann, and in particular of Lugh. He was killed by Óengus in front of Midir, according to a poem by Fland Mainistreach in Lebor Gabála Érenn. 
The reconstructed Proto-Celtic lexica at the universities of Leiden and Wales suggest that this name may be derived from Proto-Celtic *Ad-bej-ānos, literally meaning at-striking-related-one and possibly denoting the concept of harp-strumming. The Romano-British form of this name, if it existed, might plausibly have been *Abeianos.
