It comes from the Scots Gaelic "mala" (brow) and "mìn" (smooth). Thus "Malamhìn" (MAL-a-veen) became "Malmhìne" (MAL-veen-a), which became "Malvina".

If the name Malvina was coined by a poet, shouldn't the usage be under "Literature", like Ossian is?

Napoleon originally named the Falkland Islands off South America St. Malo, becoming "Malouines." Being that the letters "u" and "v" were interchangeable at the time, and for euphonic reasons, Malvines/Malvinas prevailed.
Nickname: Malvi.
