"A daimyo was a feudal lord in shogunal Japan from the 12th century to the 19th century. The daimyos were large landowners and vassals of the shogun. Each daimyo hired an army of samurai warriors to protect his family's lives and property.

The word "daimyo" comes from the Japanese roots "dai," meaning "big or great," and "myo," or "name." It roughly translates in English to "great name." In this case, however, "myo" means something like "title to land," so the word really refers to the daimyo's large landholdings and would most likely literally translate to "owner of great land."

The equivalent in English to daimyo would be closest to "lord" as it was used in the same time period of Europe…."
