The meaning of the expression ´Moin´in Hamburg
And by the way, there is one quite charming word that every native and honorary Hamburger should know: Here we greet each other with a hearty “Moin!”, whether during the day or at night. Indeed, it has puzzled many an outsider when, for instance, a barman welcomed them into his pub at 11 PM, as many think “Moin” is the short form of “Guten Morgen”.
According to our research, the word “Moin” derives from the old gothic word for “wind”. We can certainly imagine that the seafaring Northern Germans would typically reply with “Moin, Moin!”, as sailors could of course always use more wind.
