Meaning of Maliha

Maliha is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means “woman with happy glowing face”, “beautiful”, “well-spoken”. It is derived from the M-L-H6 root (salt, beauty) which is used twice in the Quran.

It is He who released the two bodies of flowing water, one sweet and fresh and the other salty and bitter, and set up an insurmountable barrier between them. (Quran 25:53)

    What is M-L-H6 of the name Maliha?
    Why is it writen so many times in so many places?

    Salam aleykoum wa rahma toe Allahi wa baraķa tu.

    Can I spell the name maliha otherwise like Melia?

    Is that permissable

    My name is Maleha.
    Is this spelling can also be adopted as I use it?
