Actually the name "Malik" means MASTER not king. There is certainly a difference as a Master is greater than a mere king. According to the rules of Arabic, when "Malik" is used in a lower form, as a mere word, its intensity or power is greatly diminished making it mean king, which again is less than a Master.

Malik is considered a correct Romanization of 3 different Arabic words. These include:

* (ملك) Malik (also Malek or Melik), an Arabic word and title, meaning "king", "monarch", and "sovereign". Notably not used as a given first name, but rather as a title.

* (مالك) Mālik (also Maalik), an Arabic word and name, meaning "owner", "proprietor", "proprietary", "possessor", and "holder". It is the the most common among the three to be used as a first name for a person, and its use as a name dates back to ancient times.

* (مليك) Malīk (also Maleek), can mean either of the two words above. Although mostly not used as a given first name.

For this reason, the meaning of "owner, possessor" is more correct as the name's meaning.

How I do believe this is typically an Arabic name, I believe that it can also be used as a European name, it has a very strong sound to it, like many Germanic names for example. The name Malakai is said to be English, then how is Malik Arabic? I think it sounds like a strong name for a strong person in my opinion.

Malik is NOT the name of the Yu-Gi-Oh character - his name is MARIK Ishtar.

It only sounds like "Malik" because of the Japanese accent.

Malik means "wave" in Greenlandic. And not "little wave" or else it would say Maliaraq or Malinnguaq.
