There is a reference to a city called Melian in the writings of Thucydides. Melyan is also a family name in Ngorno Karabahk. It is very possible that there is a village of the same name in Ngorno Karabahk but that is a guess. I suspect that you are correct that it may be a Malayer.
I highly recommend this site as one of the very best sources of good information on Oriental rugs. Afshin does a great job helping people. I have a few notes and pictures I pulled together and you are welcome to visit:
