Top 100 Best Malay Names For Baby Girls

Choosing a name for your new baby can be a challenging process. Do you want a name that’s old and traditional? Or perhaps a more modern name that sounds cool and edgy? Or maybe you just want something completely unique and out of this world?

In any case, it’s important to think carefully before choosing a name. If you’re not sure what to pick, it might help to look at some of the meanings behind the names as well as how easy they are to spell or pronounce.

Typical Malay names don’t use the family name. Instead, they will have a patronym such as ‘bin’ or ‘binti’, which means ‘son of’ or ‘daughter of’, followed by the father’s name.

A number of Malays also use a second name – a practice known as Addenda. Such names include examples such as Muhammad, Mat, Abdul, and Ahmed for boys or Noor and Siti for girls.

To help you choose the best name possible for your child, we’ve put together a list of the top 100 Malay boy names as well as a list of the top 100 Malay girl names.
