The Garden of Eden is located in what used to be Babylon, now Iraq.

The garden of Eden is a legend, it isn't actually located anywhere.

I have heard that "Eden" means "delight" in Hebrew. I don't know if this information is valid though. It is my daughter's name and she is truly a delight.

It also means "gentle", from the Hebrew word "adin" which is spelled the same way in Hebrew (ayn, dalet, nun).

The Hebrew term may derive from the Sumerian "EDIN", which means "steppe, plain, desert, wilderness". The Sumerians used the term to refer to lands west of the Euphrates.

Another theory is that it comes from a Semitic root word meaning "abundant, lush".
