What does "pappi" mean?
I hear ladies sometimes say this to men.
Just to put my two-bobs-worth in here. When I was in Costa Rica last year I heard "Papi" used many times - always in a friendly way - sometimes between friends; sometimes between strangers; always between males - I took it to mean "mate" or "buddy" ...I guess it again comes down to regional variations...
It's what you call your sancho.
Papi - daddy - term of endearment
