Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - En-rimmon
EN-RIMMON (‘spring of [the] pomegranate’). One of the settlements of the Judahites after the return from the Exile ( Nehemiah 11:29 ). In Joshua 15:32 amongst the towns assigned to Judah we find ‘Ain and Rimmon,’ and in Joshua 19:7 (cf. 1 Chronicles 4:32 ) amongst those assigned to Simeon are ‘Ain, Rimmon.’ In all these instances there can be littls doubt that we ought to read En-rimmon . En-rimmon is probably to be identified with the modern Umm er-Rumâmin , about 9 miles N. of Beersheba.

Holman Bible Dictionary - En-rimmon
(ehn-rihm' mohn) Place name meaning, “spring of the pomegranate.” A town in Judah (Nehemiah 11:29 ) where people lived in Nehemiah's day (about 445 B.C.). Ain and Rimmon or Remmon appear as separate cities in the tribal territory of Judah (Joshua 15:32 ), settled by the tribe of Simeon (Joshua 19:7 ). These two are often read as one city (Joshua 19:7 , RSV but not NRSV), but this makes the numbers of the cities in the lists inaccurate. It is located at khirbet er-Ramamin, about two miles south of Lahav.
