Which Navy did you have in mind? There is no such rank in the US Navy. Command Sergeant Major is a high enlisted rank in the US Army, and denotes the senior NCO of whatever unit or element they hold the position in (it can be anywhere from Battalion to Army level).

All information gleaned from the following website: www.history.navy.mil/trivia/triv4-5m.htm Originally the King was the ultimate commander in times of war. He appo…inted Captains to run the wars. They were termed " Captain Generals" to denoted their rank of head of the war effort in an overall or "general" sphere of operations. If the Captain Generals had too much on their plate, they appoint assistants or Lieutenants. They took the name Lieutenant Generals. The suppley and administration of small units were usually done by the Sergeant Major, sooo when the Captain General needed some good admin guys he appointed men as Sergeant Major Generals. Colonels ran Regiments. When there were too many Regiments for the existing Generals to have effective control , they created Brigades who were then commanded by Brigadiers General. Over the years as the scope and specifics of the various duties changed, the prefixes were many times dropped, so we had Generals, Lieutenant Generals Major Generals and Brigadier Generals.

Lieutenant Colonel, also for Marine Corp and Air Force. The equivalent ranks are: Army / Marines / Air Force - Lt. Colonel (Silver Oak Leaf) Navy / Coast Guard - Command…er (Silver Oak Leaf) Both pay grades are O-5.

A Navy Commander has a higher military rank (O-5), than an Army Major (O-4).
16th Century Europe, but in the U.S. the first official U.S. use of the term was in 1776, when a sergeant major was appointed to the headquarters of each infantry battalion of… the Continental Army.
Commander is a rank exclusive to the Navy and Coast Guard, whereas Major is used by the Army, Air Force, and Marine Corps. Commander is pay grade O-5, which is equivalent to a… Lieutenant Colonel in the other branches. Major is pay grade O-4, and is one rank lower.
No, not as such, but the Royal Marines (part of the Naval Service) use Army ranks, so there are RM Majors.

Technically, yes - but a Captain wouldn't dare try barking orders at the Sergeant Major of the Army.
