Do 'mùa đông' (winter) and 'đông' (east) have an etymological link or is it just a coincidence?

They sound identical in Mandarin also (where they are "dōng"), and there it is just a coincidence.

In Hanoi we say mùa hè. Maybe in this particular expression (listing the four seasons) a certain order and word choice is mandatory?
