The city of Gdynia has a long and complex history, reflected by its name. It is believed to stem from the Polish word "gdańsk" (pronounced ), which means "harbour", or from the Slavic word "gudno" ("marsh"), or possibly even as far back as the Scandinavian word for fjord. In Polish, there are many other places called Gdynia: in Poland itself; in Germany; and on Lake Ontario (see below). The most notable one is probably that located near Poznań at , where a castle was built before 1038 by Mieszko I of Poland. This place lies on Baltic Sea coast between Szczecin and Świecie, thus covering some distance between those two cities.
