O Meien (王銘琬 Ō Meien, called Wang Mingyuan Pinyin: Wng Mngwǎn) in Chinese, is a Taiwan-born (22 November 1961) 9-dan professional Go player active in Japan. Brother of Tei Meiko and Tei Meiki.

O won the Honinbo title in 2000 and held it the following year before losing it to Kato Masao in 2002. O took the Oza title from Cho Chikun in December 2002. In July 2012, O Meien won his sixth title, the 2nd Igo Masters Cup, beating Cho Chikun.

A pupil of Go Seigen, O has an interesting style based on quick development in the fuseki and on the use of influence. He is a very determined fighter, with plenty of kiai.

In February 25 2010, O Meien hit the 900 landmark by beating Ko Iso in the final prelim of the 35th Kisei.
