Copenhagen (English pronunciation: [koʊpənheɪɡən]); Danish: København (pronounced [kʰøb̥ənˈhaʊ̯ˀn]) is the capital and largest city of Denmark.
The city’s origin as a harbour and a place of commerce is reflected in its name. Its original designation, from which the contemporary Danish name is derived, was Køpmannæhafn, “merchants’ harbour”. The English name for the city is derived from its Low German name, Kopenhagen. The element hafnium is also named for Copenhagen, whose Latin name is Hafnia.
