What does the name malaysia mean?

Malaysia derives from the name Malaya(modern day Peninsular Malaysia or West Malaysia), and the merger of letters from the state names Sabah, Sarawak (s,a) and Singapore (s,i). Sabah and Sarawak (East Malaysia, or Malaysian Borneo) remain as a part of the 13 states that makes up Malaysia, but Singapore seceded in August 1965.
