Hi Sarah,
You don't say where you are looking, I have found a few ABERDEEN on the IGI,
another possibility could be a spelling change. My Great grandfather's first
wife was Elizabeth ABERDEIN. I seem to come from a family with spelling
changes every few generations. i.e. ROBBIE/ROBIE, CRAIGMILE/CRAIGMYLE are
but two examples.
