(lay' uh duhn) Personal name meaning, “throat” or “double chin.” 1. Member of tribe of Ephraim (1 Chronicles 7:26 ) and ancestor of Joshua 2:1 . Original ancestor of clan of Levites and son of Gershon (1 Chronicles 23:7-9; 1 Chronicles 26:21 ), though elsewhere Gershon's son is named Libni. See Libni . Some suggest that Laadan originally belonged to family of Libni, but his clan became more prominent and overshadowed that of Libni in later times.
