Abdi is a male name of Arabic origin. Arabic speakers would instead use Abdu (عبده / عبدو ʿabdu). Abdu is a nickname in Arabic for Abdel, or a given name.
Abdi has its origin from the Arabic word عبد ال ʿabd al- / ʿabd el- / ʿabd ul-. The name translates as "servant" or "slave" in reference to submission to Allah (God). As such, it is often used in conjunction with one of the names of God in Islam, but also sometimes independently.
Abdi is also the name of three men in the Hebrew Bible
