Smith's Bible DictionaryDaughter
The word is used in Scripture not only for daughter, but for granddaughter or other female descendant. (Genesis 24:48) It is used of the female inhabitants of a place or country, (Genesis 6:2; Luke 23:28) and of cities in general, (Isaiah 10:32; 23:12) but more specifically of dependent towns or hamlets, while to the principal city the correlative "mother" is applied. (Numbers 21:25) "Daughters of music," i.e. singing birds, (Ecclesiastes 12:4) refers to the power of making and enjoying music.
Easton's Bible DictionaryThis word, besides its natural and proper sense, is used to designate,
(3.) Small towns and villages lying around a city are its "daughters," as related to the metropolis or mother city. Tyre is in this sense called the daughter of Sidon (Isaiah 23:12).
(4.) The people of Jerusalem are spoken of as "the daughters of Zion" (Isaiah 37:22).
(5.) The daughters of a tree are its boughs (Genesis 49:22).
(6.) The "daughters of music" (Ecclesiastes 12:4) are singing women.
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary1. (n.) The female offspring of the human species; a female child of any age; -- applied also to the lower animals.
2. (n.) A female descendant; a woman.
3. (n.) A son's wife; a daughter-in-law.
International Standard Bible EncyclopediaDAUGHTER
do'-ter (bath; thugater): Used in Scriptures in several more or less distinct senses:
(bath-par`oh): The princess who rescued Moses (Exodus 2:5-10 Hebrews 11:24). This is probably a title as well as an appellation, indicating not only one of the daughters of a Pharaoh, but also some very distinguished rank, thought to be most probably that of the heir to the throne by birth; though she was debarred from reigning by reason of sex, she still possessed the right to entail the scepter and crown to her oldest son. Positive identification of the "Pharaoh's daughter" mentioned in the Bible is not possible yet. All attempts toward identification are, of course, guided by the particular theory of the oppressor accepted. If the Pharaoh of the Oppression was Rameses II, as is most likely, then Pharaoh's daughter was probably the daughter of Seti I, an older sister of Rameses II. If, as many think, the Pharaoh of the Oppression was Thothmes III, then Pharaoh's daughter was some unknown princess. Some have thought she was Hatshepsut, the "Queen Elizabeth of Egypt."
