Moin is a Frisian and Low German greeting from East Frisia, Southern Schleswig (inclusive North Frisia and Flensburg), Bremen, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the eastern Netherlands and Southern Jutland in Denmark, meaning "hello".
People in more southern parts of Germany often mistakenly assume that Moin is a short form of Morgen (meaning "morning") and should be used like "good morning". Saying "moin" in parts of Germany other than the north will indicate you to be a northerner. Non-locals often fall into the trap of using "moin moin" instead of "moin", which is more commonly used amongst the locals.
Moin is also a likely root for the Finnish informal greetings moi ("hello" or "hi") and moi moi ("goodbye") which are typical of Southwestern Finnish.
