Malaya is the Tagalog (Filipino) word for “free, freedom”. It may also be related to Malaysia.

Popularity of the Name Malaya

Malaya just appeared on the American female naming charts in 2006. It’s still a bottom-dweller on the Top 1000 list, but it’s impressive that such an obscure Filipino name made the charts at all. The Filipino-American population is barely over 1% in the United States, concentrated mostly in California (Hawaii is in a distant second place). Malaya is reminiscent of Malia (Hawaiian for Mary) as well as Malaysia (a place name in the Orient).
