Hornnes is a former municipality in Aust-Agder county, Norway. Hornnes is located within the present-day municipality of Evje og Hornnes in the traditional district of Setesdal. The 378km2 municipality of Hornnes existed from 1886 until 1960. The administrative centre was the village of Hornnes where the Hornnes Church is located.HistoryThe municipality of Hornnes was created on 1 January 1886 when the municipality of Hornnes og Iveland was divided into two separate municipalities: Hornnes (population: 1,113) and Iveland (population: 1,103). During the 1960s, there were many municipal mergers across Norway due to the work of the Schei Committee. On 1 January 1960, Hornnes was merged with the neighboring municipality of Evje to form a new municipality called Evje og Hornnes (literally "Evje and Hornnes"). Prior to the merger Hornnes had a population of 1,280. On 1 January 1986, the Lislevand farm area (population: 8) in the neighboring Birkenes municipality was transferred to the municipality of Evje og Hornnes.NameThe municipality of Hornnes is named after an old Hornnes farm, since the first Hornnes Church was built there. The first element is horn which means "horn" and the last element is nes which means "headland". So the meaning of Hornnes is "the headland shaped like a horn", probably referring to the small peninsulas on either side of the river Otra as it enters the lake Breidflå. Historically, the name was spelled Hordnæs.
