Absolutely speculative on the order of just having some fun!
To add to the intrigue we could also say that the meaning of Malikah as ruler
Where as the name Malia may also be African in origin, coming from a Swahili word that means “Queen.”
hahaha - ruler/queen same thing!
I guess you can make just about something out of nothing! Again all speculation and just a coincidence! But, pretty funny to say the least! ;)
