'Malk' or 'Mal' is a common slavic prefix on surnames (ie. Malkov / Malkovich)
You don't know what you are talking about. Odessa is full of Jewish Malkins. They are all over Russia, Moldova, Ukraine, Belarus, etc. It's one of those names that instantly identifies you as Jewish to people from the former ussr.
