Understand “Lord” through Etymology 

The etymology of the word “Lord”

The word “lord” comes from a blending of the Old English Words for “bread” and “guard”. The implication is of a person who provides and protects the source of livelihood of a (his) family.

It’s fascinating to note how this word evolved in scope from the protector of one house to the protector of the universe (the Lord).

Compare, “lady”.
