The first mentions of the town appeared in the ‘’Life of Otton from Bamberg’’,‘’Civitas ducis Camina’’ by Herbord, ‘’Castrum magnum Gamin’’ by Eb, and ‘’In urbe Games’’. Other names are Chamin and Camyna. A bull of 14th October 1140 has mention of ‘’Chamin cum taberna et foro’’. In a bull of 25th February 1188 there is ‘’apud civitated Camyn’’.
