German term or phrase: diespaten
godfather

English translation:Guess it's guessing time again ;)
Explanation:
Okie.

"diespaten" ain't a German word. Where did you pick it up? More references?

Assuming we're talking about the movie: the German title of "The Godfather" is "Der Pate".

Assuming you mean "des Paten", then it's "the godfather's".

If you mean "die Spaten", then it's "the spades".
