What does "Badenyon" mean?

the Scottish Parliament's Gaelic Placenames gazetteer gives

Badenyon (Aberdeen).

This appears to be "the copse of the bird", from Bad an EÃ?in , but is uncertain.

Music of Badenyon: John O'Badenyon

John O' Badenyon is a famous reel, attributed to the Reverend John Skinner (1721-1807) [see also the Burns Encyclopaedia entry on Skinner], much derivatised and reworked [even Franz Josef Haydn seems to have had a go in 1792!]: see Google for links to sheet music of the reel, and other information on it. Its been recorded by lots of people, both Breton fiddler-folkies and Haydn-completists. Those with a linguistic bent can go to HMV Japan for one recent release.
