Pronounced MAH-lick, this striking boy’s name appeared for the first time on the American baby naming polls in 1970, after immigration quotas were lifted and more people from other countries were allowed entry into the US and brought the name with them. Many African Americans also favor this strong, distinctive name (meaning “sovereign” or “king”), which gives props to their African/Muslim roots. Famous namesakes include former pro basketball star Malik Rose.
