Óin is a name of two fictional characters of J. R. R. Tolkien's fantasy world of Middle-earth.

Óin was the son of Glóin, and succeeded his father as King of Durin's folk, reigning from 2385 to 2488 Third Age. He lived with his kindred in the Ered Mithrin, and saw the takeover of Moria by Orcss, which had multiplied by then as a result of Sauron's growing presence in the Mirkwood.

Another Óin accompanied Thorin on his quest in The Hobbit. He was the son of Gróin, the grandson of Borin, the younger son of King Náin II, and so could claim direct descent from Durin the Deathless himself. Glóin, another of Thorin's companions, was his brother.
