What does hime mean?

Hime
Hime is the Japanese word for "princess", or more literally "demoiselle", i.e. a lady of higher birth. Daughters of a monarch are actually referred to by other terms, e.g. Ōjo, literally king's daughter, even though Hime can be used to address Ōjo. The word Hime initially referred to any beautiful female. The antonym of Hime is Shikome, literally ugly female, though it is archaic and rarely used. Hime may also indicate feminine or simply small when used together with other words, such as Hime-gaki. Hime is commonly seen as part of a Japanese female divinity's name, such as Toyotama-hime. The Kanji applied to transliterate Hime are 比売 or 毘売 rather than 姫. The masculine counterpart of Hime is Hiko which is seen as part of Japanese male gods' names, such as Saruta-hiko. Unlike Hime, Hiko is neutral, non-archaic and still commonly used as a modern Japanese male given name, for example Nobuhiko Takada. Usually, a "Hime" will go through a ceremony, in which she is considered a "Daoshi" and then later becomes a Hime. The ceremony is similar to the Japanese tea ceremony, and is usually up to 3 hours.
