This name is of Brittonic origin (Breton / Welsh) and derives from the Old Irish and Proto-Celtic “máel / mael”, meaning “bald, bare, shaved, shorn, tonsured (chief, prince)”. In the pre-Christian era the meaning was “of a slave”. After the introduction of Christianity to Ireland the name was changed as someone who is devoted (to God or to a given saint).
