Being Welsh or having a Welsh accent. Possibly derived from two sources. (1) after the River Taff that runs through Cardiff (the captal city) or (2) more likely from a mutation of the name of a large number of Welsh males named Dafydd (David).

Taffy was thief
Taffy came to my house
And stole a leg of beef
