The Mümling is a river in Germany. It is 49.7 kilometres (30.9 mi) long and lends its name to the Mümlingtal (Mümling valley) in Odenwald. In Bavaria it is sometimes called Mömling in official documents.


The Romans named this river Nemaninga, and after it the Numerus Brittonum et exploratorum Nemaningensium unit in Obernburg. In the 9th century, this river was first mentioned with the name Mimininga. The name Mümling probably belongs to the so-called "pra-european hydronyms" as a twin-form of Neman River.
