Hi everyone, I'm curious to know the meaning of the name Kaido. I read One Piece manga and there is a character named Kaido.
Some people say it means a courageous leader, is this true?

His name is spelled in katakana in the manga (カイドウ), which is a purely phonetic script. As such it does not have any meaning.

If you want to search by pronunciation on Jisho, it's better to use hiragana: かいどう - Jisho.org
This turns up 7 different words that happen to be pronounced in the same way as this character's name. I doubt he's related to any of them :)

The author may have a meaning intended (but not yet revealed) of course, but that doesn't have to align with any particular dictionary word with the same reading.
