Madmannah (Person)
The Lexham Bible Dictionary
Madmannah, Son of Shaaph
Madmannah, Son of Shaaph (מַדְמַנָּה‎, madmannah). First Chronicles 2:49 identifies Shaaph as the father of Madmannah, but the verse could be using a figure of speech to credit Shaaph as the founder of the town of Madmannah, mentioned in Josh 15:31.
The Wycliffe Bible Encyclopedia
MADMANNAH. Calebite town in the S of Judah near Ziklag (Josh 15:31; 1 Chr 2:19), perhaps identical with Beth-marcaboth (Josh 19:5). It is probably modern Umm Deimneh c. ten miles NE of Beer-sheba.

MADMANNAH [mad MAN nuh] — the name of a man and a town in the Old Testament:1. A town in the southern wilderness of Judah near Ziklag (Josh. 15:20, 31), perhaps the same place as Beth Marcaboth (1 Chr. 4:31).2. A son of Shaaph, of the tribe of Judah (1 Chr. 2:49).
The New Interpreter’s Dictionary of the Bible, Volumes 1–5
MADMANNAH mad-man´uh [מַדְמַנָּהmadhmannah]. Means “dung heap.” 1. A city in the western Negev of Judah (Josh 15:31). Because Ziklag appears next to Madmannah in Josh 15:31 and next to BETH-MARCABOTH in the list of Simeonite cities (Josh 19:5), some scholars have suggested that Madmannah was also known
