It is a title in Spain (Don/Dona) and Italy (Don/Donna) descending from Latin "dominus," master, lord. It is thus cognate with French/British/Portuguese Dom/Dame and British Dan (judge).

I always thought it was old latin from Spain and Italy as a way of addressing a gentleman or nobleman instead of calling him 'mister'.
