Papa is also used for Ray (like manta rays). Makes buying seafood a little tricky!
Haha, Papa shark
Papa means "shark"?! I should definitively say that to my dad ! ^^
You revere him as a pope? Wow XD
"papa" in several roman languages means "dad". Do you get it now ?
Or as a potato ;)
Does your dad play cards?
Then he is a card-shark.
Derives from Portuguese papa according to Wiktionary (https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/papa#Swahili)
Anyway it also means pope according to many sources at least that's much more understandable/predictable haha
No, only the sense "pope" descends from Portuguese "papa". There are two etymologies for this word ... it's just coincidence that they have the same form.
I am a shark
