In Swahilli Malika means "Angel". In the East Indies Malika means "queen", but also "Noblewoman". The name Mallika, pronounced Maleeka, can be found in an Aria in the Opera "Lakme" by the composer Delibes.

One of my middle names is Malikah, which I learned to mean "princess" or "ruler". Perhaps different origin or additional meaning, but interesting to learn.

I thought it was pronounced "ma-LIE-kah". =O

In English-speaking countries (especially the United States) if you are not of Arabic origin and do not hold an appropriate surname, "Malika" will be seen as "kre8tiv" (in other words: made up). That all aside, I am not a fan... it seems to be lacking a key factor (perhaps professionalism?).

Malika (ملكة) is NOT pronounced "mə-LEE-kə" or "mə-LIE-kə".

It is pronounced 'Mə-LIK-ə' (the 'lik' part sounding EXACTLY like the word 'lick'). This name 'Malika' means "queen".

"Mə-LIE-kə" is the pronunciation of the DIFFERENT name "Malaika" (ملائكة) meaning "angels". Check out Malaika here: http://www.behindthename.com/name/malaika

The "mə-LEE-kə" pronunciation is COMPLETELY INCORRECT and there is NO Arabic name said like this AT ALL so it's MEANINGLESS in Arabic.

Hope I helped clear things up. (I can read Arabic.) [noted -ed]
