"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. It roughly translated to "Dark Lord."[10] The Sith names of Sheev Palpatine, Count Dooku, and Anakin Skywalker were Darth Sidious, Darth Tyranus, and Darth Vader, respectively.[11]

HistoryEdit

The title was already in use about a millennium before the Clone Wars, when Darth Bane established the Rule of Two.[12] In at least two known cases (that of Count Dooku and Anakin Skywalker), the Darth title and the accompanying moniker were bestowed onto the Sith apprentice by the master.[6][11]

The Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi once used "Darth" as a form of address when talking to Darth Vader.[13] Imperial officers typically addressed Vader as "Lord Vader".[14]
