Nannestad is a municipality in Akershus county, Norway. It is part of the traditional region of Romerike. The administrative centre of the municipality is the village of Teigebyen. Nannestad was established as a municipality on 1 January 1838 (see formannskapsdistrikt).
The municipality (originally the parish) is named after the old Nannestad farm (Old Norse: Nannastaðir), since the first church was built here. The first element is the genitive case of Nanni (an old Norse male name) and the last element is staðir which means "homestead" or "farm".
Nannestad is located in northwestern Akershus county, with inhabitants concentrated at Romerikssletta. It includes the villages of Maura, Holter and Teigebyen, the latter being the administrative centre.
