Naming someone “Malika” or “Malak”

Question:

Am I allowed to name my daughter Malika?

Zaynab El-Kateb:

There was a Companion called Malika Al-Ansariyah, therefore, it is allowed to name your daughter “Malika” which is derived from “Queen”.

However, it is not allowed to name her “Malak” because this implies that the Angels are female and that is not true.
