malik

Last name origins & meanings:

  1. Muslim and Hindu (mainly Panjab): status name from a title meaning ‘lord’, ‘ruler’, ‘chief’, from Arabic malik ‘king’. In the subcontinent this is often found as a title for the headman of a village. In Islam Al-Malik ‘the King’ is one of the attributes of Allah, regarded as ‘the king of mankind’ (Qur’an 114:2), and this word is used in combination in names such as ‛Abd-ul Malik ‘servant of the King’. This was the name of an Umayyad khalif (685–705).
  2. Czech, Slovak (Malík), and Slovenian: nickname for a small person, from a pet form of a vocabulary word meaning ‘small’ (Polish mały, Czech malý ‘small’, Slovenian mali). Compare Maly.
