ㄠ or 

The two-character answer is a straight translation of daughter. The first character  (nv) means female and the second, ㄠ (er) means child. In other words, "female child."

The one-character answer  (nv or nue), as mentioned above, means generally "female." But when only one character is needed, it is also used to stand for "female child." For example, when you have in mind "son and daughtger," or "sons and daughters," you say "ㄠ (er-nv)" Here, ㄠ (er) stands for son or sons, and  (nv) stands for daughter, or daughters.
