I have thought a name Malik Ahmed if it's a boy and Zoya if it's a girl... So can u tell me the meaning for both the name


This is an official answer by Staff

Malik is a Quranic name and it means king and it can be said as Maalek (with long "a") and Maleek with short "a" and long "e", and both have the same meaning. Ahmed means someone who is worthy of praise and it is a Quranic name. Zoya is not an Islamic/Arabic name, I found a website that said it means "loving, caring" and that it comes from Persian.
