Khotanan was a village in the territory of the Zangezur uezd of the former Yelizavetpol (Ganja) governorate, later in the former Gorus district, and present-day Syunik province. The village was marked on the five-verst map of the Caucasus.

The village was solely inhabited by Azerbaijanis: 53 in 1873, 58 in 1886, 74 in 1897, 91 in 1904 and 81 Azerbaijanis in 1914. The Azerbaijanis were attacked, massacred or ousted from the village by Armenian armed formations in 1918. The village was abolished in 1920. At present, it lies in ruins.

The toponym was coined by adding the plural ending “-an” to the name of the Turkic Khotan tribe.
