ZAANAN zā’ ə năn (צַֽאֲנָ֔ן). A town in W Judah (Mic 1:11). It has not been identified, but it is generally considered to be the same as Zenan (Josh 15:37).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

A place named by Micah in the Shephelah of Judah (1:11). In this sentence the prophet makes verbal play with the name, as if it were derived from yatsa’, "to go forth": "The inhabitant (margin "inhabitress") of tsa’anan is not come forth" (yatse’ah). The place is not identical. It is probably the same as ZENAN.
