Like Maliyah and Maliah, Maleah is the Americanized spelling of the Hawaiian name Malia and is incredibly popular for girls. Malia may come from the Hawaiian word malie, meaning “calm, peaceful.” Malia may also be a recreation of the Hebrew name Mary, meaning “star of the sea” or “bitter.” When Christian explorers ventured to Hawaii, they brought names incompatible with the Hawaiian alphabet—thus, Malia was born. Maleah flows off the tongue like a sigh and inspires imagery of glistening waves and fragrant flowers. Whether you have Hawaiian ancestry or simply love the name, Maleah is a beautiful choice that may inspire serenity in baby.
