MALY Family HistoryRecorded in over fifty spellings froms including Maly, Malec, Malak, Malata. Malov, Malicki, Maltsev, Malenkov, Malyj, Maliszewski, and found as well in Poland, Russia, The Ukraine, Hungary, and Croatia, this is a surname of Czech origins. It derives from the pre medieval word "maly" meaning small, and hence was either a nickname for a person of small stature (or given the robust humour of the period, the complete reverse!), or it was a personal name of endearment given as a baptismal name to a child, which later developed as a surname.
