Otto I, Duke of Pomerania (1279 – 31 December 1344) was Duke of Pomerania-Stettin.
Youngest, and probably posthumous, son of Duke Barnim I and his third wife, Mechtild of Brandenburg-Salzwedel, Otto became titular co-ruler at his birth, along with his elder half-brother Barnim II and his much older half-brother Bogislaw IV.
Bogislaw was effectively sole ruler while Barnim and Otto were children, and it was not until 1294 that he shared power with his younger half-brothers. In 1295, with Barnim dead, the brothers divided Pomerania with Otto as ruler of Stettin while Bogislaw received Wolgast.
From 1320 his son Barnim (III) was co-ruler with Otto.
