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.

There is a song, called Malaika. The text is in Swahili and begins "Malaika, nakupenda Malaika". The song has been recorded by among others Miriam Makeba.

Beautiful name with one of the best meanings.

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.

Malaika Arora Khan is an Indian Bollywood actress and dancer. She is probably most well known for appearing in the songs "Chaiyya Chaiyya" and "Munni Badnaam Hui."
