The area of Maldives has been occupied since ancient times. Therefore it is not known who was the first to discover this nation.
They speak a language called Dhivehi. It is not widely spoken in other countries, although it is related to Sinhalese, the language of Sri Lanka.
The official language of the Maldives is Maldivian (Dhivehi)

There is no direct way to say "hello" in Dhivehi. Normally, being a Muslim country, Maldivians use to the Islamic greeting "assalam alaikum" (peace be upon you); and this is followed by the Dhivehi way of saying hello, "how are you?" which is ކިހިނެތް؟ [kihineiy?] or "how is your health?" which is ހާލު ކިހިނެތް؟ [haalu kihineiy].
