From Arabic اَللّٰه(allāh, God) through the common dialectal form alla with loss of the final -h. Notwithstanding the fact that modern Maltese people descend mainly from converted Muslims, the Arabic word is a general term for “God” used also by Arabic-speaking Jews and Christians (and, in fact, used by them even before the advent of Islam itself).
