In this Japanese name, the family name is Miyoshi.

Miyoshi Masanaga (三好 政長?, 1508 – July 18, 1549) was a Japanese samurai of the Sengoku period, a member of the Miyoshi clan who served as daimyo of Awa. He is remembered as the cousin of Miyoshi Chōkei. Masanaga had very strong relations with the Ikeda clan, as Ikeda Nagamasa was his son-in-law. Due to this strong relation between the families, Chokei considered him a threat. After 1548, Masanaga engaged in a major battle against his cousin, which ended in Chokei's victory. Masanaga's whereabouts after this battle are unknown.
