Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaheguru Ji Ki Fathe!

Can anyone please tell me why Guru Gobind Singh Ji gave Sikh girls the name Kaur which means princess???? I guess I was wrong it is not prince but princess. I get really confused because in people say it means prince and others say it means princess. Sorry, but what do you suppose Guru Gobind Singh Ji was trying to say by giving us the name Kaur????

Thankyou :)

Satnam Ji, there must be an misunderstanding Kaur means Princess not Prince And Singh means Lion not King. Khalsa women are also called Singhnia which means Female Lion, this is really basic Sikh knowledge and as Sikh, I suppose you are, you should know it JIO

the women of sikhi are given the name kaur as a birth right. but have to earn the name singhni through heroic actions. men are given singh as a birth right. but have to earn the name nihang.
