Moin, moi or mojn is a Low German, High German and Kashubian greeting from East Frisia, Southern Schleswig, Holstein, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the eastern and northern Netherlands, Southern Jutland in Denmark and parts of Kashubia. It means "hello" and, in some places, "goodbye" as well. Moin is used at all times of day, not just in the morning; the reduplicated form moin moin is heard, although some authors claim it is regarded by locals as tourists' usage. The German comic character Werner always greets with Moin. Many people think that moin derives from various regional pronunciations of Morgen, which tend to alter, vocalise, or skip rg. However, the word may also derive from the Dutch and Low German word moi, meaning "beautiful" or "good". Similar forms in Low Saxon are mooien mooien Abend, mooien Moren; as is common in etymology, one origin is correct but spread thanks to its oral assimilation with the other term. The Luxembourgish cognate of the word is moien, which can mean either "hi" or "morning".

Unlike Guten Morgen, moin can be used 24 hours a day. It replaced it in many areas. In Hessen, mojn is used for hello and good bye, but mojn mojn is used for good bye; the double form Moin Moin is used as an all day greeting in for example Flensburg that belonged to Denmark until 1864 and the Swedish region of Scania, part of Denmark until 1658. Moin is very similar to the Norwegian greeting "Morn", often used twice when the greeter is in a good mood, it is short for "god morgen" which means "good morning". In Finland, a similar greeting moi is used for "hi" in the Finnish language. However, "moi moi" is used as a good bye to "bye bye" in English with a similar intonation. Both are typical of Southwestern Finnish, but through internal migration spread to the capital and with the help of TV to the rest of the language area. Moi's use is identical to that of hei: diminutive forms heippa and moikka, duplication as a good bye. Southwest Finland traded with Hanseatic cities, so it is plausible that the greeting was borrowed from their dialects.

Moro is found in some parts of Finland and has been used in the same way as moi. It is theorised that it comes from Tampere due to its large number of foreign workers and like moi has been borrowed from morrow and abbreviated. "Moi" is used in Dutch Low Saxon dialects in the eastern part of the provinces Groningen and Drenthe. MoinMoin
