Meaning uncertain. According to the diary of a Portuguese merchant, the name is derived from Tamil மைதானம் (Maidhāṉam) meaning "ground" (or Hindi मैदान (Maidan)), adopted from Malay. Alternatively, it could mean "recover, be better" or be derived from Medina, the name of a city in Saudi Arabia (known as ميدان (Midan)). Medan is the capital of the North Sumatra province on the island of Sumatra in Indonesia.
