Meaning & History
A rare masculine name from England's north; it means "little warrior".
It is very scarce outside of the South Yorkshire city of Sheffield and its surrounding towns, however, within this range, it was far more widely used - never common, but present nonetheless. Malin has been in use there as a boy's name for at least five hundred years.
Note that this name has no connection with the Scandinavian girl's name Malin
, which is a short form of the French Madeleine
