Papas Name Meaning
Greek: status name meaning ‘priest’ or, more usually, a reduced form of any of the numerous Greek patronymics starting with Papa- (see for example Papageorgiou). In the Eastern Church priests are allowed to marry and have children, so there is nothing unusual about this term having become a family name.
