Hernando DeSoto Money (August 26, 1839 – September 18, 1912) was an American politician from the state of Mississippi.


Money was born in Holmes County, Mississippi. He was named after the Spanish explorer Hernando De Soto. Early in his life, he moved with his family to Carrollton, Mississippi. He received his early education in the public schools and from a private tutor and subsequently graduated from the law department of the University of Mississippi at Oxford, where he was a member of St. Anthony Hall. He was admitted to the bar and commenced practice in Carrollton, Mississippi, about 1860.

As a young man he served in the Library of Congress from 1907 to 1909. He was chairman of the Democratic Caucus from 1909 to 1911, when he decided to retire from the Senate. He returned to his home near Biloxi, Mississippi where he died one year later. He was buried in the family vault in Carrollton. He was married and had several children.
