Try Spanish! Slovenian photographer Aleksander Petkovski has used "papagolfade" as a nickname. He has photographed a lot of churches and this word has become associated with his work. I think the word has a Spanish origin.

I have just asked my (French) husband : never he heard this word. And I am not able to determine its roots. Latin ? English/Northern ? Greek ? For you, are there some Greek roots in this term ? ... I hope Professor SmartyPants is "around" :) Sure HE DOES KNOW :)

I had never heard this word before today. I didn't find it in a very big French dictionary - Nouveau Larousse Universel - 2 vol - 1949. Maybe it is a new word ? Does anybody here know something about ? But, with Google, many sites "speak" about "papagolfades" : they show a lot of churchs/little churchs, in many places over the world :

Hi libellule, Muse is a French photographer and I thought " papagolfade " is a french word...anyway I suppose it means little church because she has the same caption in many of her photos with churches..
