The city of Windhoek is also traditionally known as Khoekhoe (hot springs) and Otjiherero (place of steam) . Strangely enough, these traditional names do not have any relation to the origin of the name ‘Windhoek’, which loosely translates to ‘windy corner’.

It was first mentioned in a letter dated 12 August 1844 from Jonker Afrikaner to Joseph Tindall. One theory suggests that Jonker named the town after the ‘Winterhoek Mountains’ at Tulbagh in the neighbouring country of South Africa where his ancestors lived.
