Midian is a geographical place mentioned several times in the Bible.  In the book of Judges, God calls Gideon to deliver Israel from the army of the Midianites.

Judges 7:8 "So the people took victuals in their hand, and their trumpets: and he sent all the rest of Israel every man unto his tent, and retained those three hundred men: and the host of Midian was beneath him in the valley."
