messenger of God
This boys' name honors one of the Hebrew prophets who wrote the final book of the Old Testament (the Book of Malachi) and was said to have predicted the coming of Christ. Pronounced MAL-a-kye, the name is a particular favorite in English, Gaelic and Hebrew-speaking countries. In Ireland, St. Malachy of the Roman Catholic Church was the first Irishman to be declared a saint. The name still has a strong hold: In 2016, the lead role of Kunta Kinte in a TV revival of “Roots” was played by the English actor Malachi Kirby.
