This is my first name. In Africa, it would be pronounced mah-lah-eek-a. In North America, it is pronounced mah-lay-ka. I like my first name because to me it has a beautiful meaning, "angel". That means a lot to me. My auntie gave me this name. I am so glad that she did because I have been an angel to so many people.

I first came across this name when watching the British TV programme Animal Park, about Longleat Safari Park, where there is a lion cub named Malaika. I think it's absolutely beautiful and rare enough that a girl with this name would be unique but not teased for it.

My cousin's middle name is Malaika (Which we pronounce Mah-LIE-Ka), but it's the name we call her instead of her first name. I think it's really sweet and pretty, and definitely a good choice. I wish I knew how my aunt even came up with the name.
