How did George Lucas come up with the title of Darth for Sith Lords?

I would personally just love to come up with a title like that for my script

     George Lucas was asked the origins of the name "Darth Vader", and replied: "Darth is a variation of dark. And Vader is a variation of father. So it's basically Dark Father." (Rolling Stone, June 2, 2005).

    While not necessarily official, I've always viewed it as an abbreviation of "DARk lord of the siTH".

    Darth Vader was meant to be evocative of 'Dark Father' with a little german sound (the Empire is a Nazi metaphor).

    🥴 I dunno. But Darth does sound like a word for Dark in Old English. 

    Siths are Jedis gone dark. Bad. So... I imagine that's what he did.
