"Henceforth, you shall be known as Darth… Vader."
―Darth Sidious, upon making Anakin Skywalker his new apprentice[src]

Darth was a title given to the Dark Lords of the Sith Order, which preceded a moniker different from the birth name. The Sith names of Sheev Palpatine, Dooku and Anakin Skywalker were Darth Sidious, Darth Tyranus and Darth Vader, respectively.[6]

The title was already in use about one millennium before the Clone Wars, when Darth Bane created the Rule of Two.[8] In at least two known cases, that of Dooku and Anakin Skywalker, the Darth title and the accompanying moniker were bestowed onto the Sith apprentice by the master.[3][6]

The Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi once used "Darth" as a form of address when talking to Darth Vader.[9] It was traditional that only the current Sith Master and his or her apprentice were allowed to use the Darth title.[10] Imperial officers typically addressed Vader as "Lord Vader".[11]
