The name Falalia or in the Falali language itself is called Falalija consists of two components: Falalija etnonim and the abstract ending which means "owner", "land" (derived from the Arabic ending, Iyya which is similar to the Greek term "ia"). Falali himself is taken from Arabic, Al-Falah which means victory. The word was chosen by Prime Minister and King Falalia, Muhammad Iqbal Zhjah Pazhja because he expected that the country he formed was a land of victory. In other words, the Prime Minister expects that the Falalas are a victorious nation.
