Wikipedia definition
5. Himeis the Japanese word for princess or 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. In some languages, the word also means a sound that a girl makes when in distress. The antonym of Hime is Shikome (醜女), literally ugly female, though it is archaic and rarely used.
