Why would it be fitting for another title? Darth is a contraction of Dark Lord of the Sith. As you'll notice, Lord is not included in the title, so Darth could just as easily be Dark Lady of the Sith. Even then, though, female Sith have used Lord regardless (though some have gone for Lady).

EDIT: Just wanted to mention that I'm aware that referring to someone as the Dark Lord of the Sith fully usually places them above a Darth on the Sith totem pole. Regardless, it's where it comes from in-universe.
