Malik

Malik is an Arabic male name meaning “king, sovereign, monarch” which comes from a Proto-Semitic root word, though mālik مَالِك  is also an Arabic word (and name) meaning “owner, possessor, master”, which also derives from the same root word as Malik ملك (king). Malik is also an Arabic word as well as a surname deriving from the given name. Malik is also a Slavic surname which comes from a Polish and Czech word, mały, meaning “small, little”. Malik is also a Greenlandic Inuit name meaning “wave”, which I’m assuming refers to a sea wave.

Origin: Proto-Semitic, Proto-Indo-European, Greenlanic
