Mi'amin (Heb. Miyamin', מַיָּמַ, a contracted form of the name Miniamin), the name of three persons after the exile.

1. (Sept. Μεϊαμείν v.r. Μεϊαμίν, Vulg. Maiman, Auth. Vers. "Mijamin.") The head of the sixth division of the sacerdotal order as distributed by David (1Ch 24:9). B.C. 1014.

2. (Sept. Μεαμείν v.r. Μιαμίν,Vulg. viamiin.) One of the chief priests who returned from Babylon with Zerubbabel (Ne 12:5). B.C. 536. He must have attained a great, age if identical with the priest who subscribed the religious covenant with Nehemiah (Ne 10:7, where the name is Anglicized "Mijamin"). B.C. cir. 410. . He is probably the same person called MINIAMIN in Ne 12:17, but his son's name appears there to have accidentally escaped from the text. SEE MOADIAH.
