Kichikkend was a village in the territory of the Echmiadzin uezd of the former Iravan governorate, later in the former Ashtarak district, and present-day Aragatsotn province. It was located on the right bank of the Abaran River and near the village of Karbi. The name of the village was noted in “The Iravan Province Review Book” and in the 19th-century sources in Russian.

The village was solely inhabited by Azerbaijanis: 77 in 1831, 166 in 1873, 235 in 1886, 296 in 1897, 366 in 1908, 292 in 1914, 249 in 1916, 370 in 1918 and 233 Azerbaijanis in 1919. The inhabitants were attacked and ousted from the village by Armenian armed formations in 1919. After the establishment of Soviet power in present-day Armenia, the Azerbaijanis who survived managed to return to their ancestral lands. The village was also solely inhabited by Azerbaijanis later: 56 in 1922 and 55 Azerbaijanis in 1931. The village was abolished after the Azerbaijani population of the village had been deported to Azerbaijan in accordance with the decision of the USSR Council of Ministers “On resettlement of collective farmers and other Azerbaijani population from the Armenian SSR to the Kur-Araz lowlands of the Azerbaijan SSR” dated 23 December 1947. At present, the village is in ruins.

The toponym was coined on the basis of the words “kichik” meaning “small, narrow, tiny” and “kend” meaning “a village, a settlement” in Azerbaijani.
