Meaning & History
A variant spelling of Malefeyt
. This is also actually an archaic spelling (as the sound written as -eijt
will be always be written as -eit
in modern times), but it has (barely) managed to survive into modern times. In The Netherlands, it had less than 5 bearers in 2007, so this particular spelling of the surname is on the brink of extinction.
