Malik

Malik (Arabic: ملك‎ ) is an Arabic and Northwest Semitic (e.g. Neo Aramaic) word meaning "king, chieftain" or angel. It is very similar to the Arabic name/ word malek مالِك

It has been adopted in various other, mainly Islamized or Arabized, Asian languages for their ruling princes and to render kings elsewhere. It is also sometimes used in derived meanings. 'Al-Malik' (literally 'The King') is one of the Names of Allah.

The female version of Malik is Malikah (Arabic: ملكة‎) (or its Persian language equivalent Malekeh), meaning "queen". The name Malik is also found among ethnic Assyrian Christians of Iraq, Iran and Turkey, and in India and Pakistan, for example, in Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Haryana, Rajasthan, and Delhi.
