My kids call my parents 'Grandma and Grandpa ____.' They call my MIL 'Grandma ____.' They called my FIL 'Pop-Pop'. They call my grandma 'Gaga' (name I gave her 30 some years ago) and my Grandpa 'Great Grandpa'. My niece and nephews call my MIL Granny and she tries so hard to get my kids to call her that, but she has always been Grandma ____ to them and always will be.

My son is on the phone with my mother right now. With his twang, it sounds more like Grandmall than Grandma, LOL!! Believe me, there is no more special person in the world to him than his "Grandmall".

My granddaughter first called me "NaNa" at 6 months old. It stuck. My other granddaughter calls me "Grandma Betty" as I am her step-grandmother. My granddaughter calls my Mother "Great NaNa".

my DD's daughter calls us grammie and grampy
my DS's daughter and son call us grumma and grumpy.
......need I go on about that grumpy thing?? ;-)

His 2 kids, my stepchildren's kids......another story.
We hardly ever see them so they do not call us by anything yet.
They are almost 1 and almost 4.

Grandparent names

My four year old grandaughter has always called us Memaw and Papaw and that is probably what her 10 month old brother will do also.
I was told that is what kids call grandparents down south and that is not where we live.
She calls her Daddys parents Nanny and Poppa.

I don't care what they call me I am just glad I have grandkids!!

Well, lets see I called my paternal G-Mom Mama (maternal one died when my mom was 2 weeks old) and I called my maternal G-Dad Granddaddy (paternal bio dad died when I was 11 months so did not have him to call anything) but called my beloved Step G-Dad Granddaddy Sid, then down to Daddy Sid and finally after I was grown just Dad. My children called my Mom Granny and my bio Dad was Gramps then my beloved step dad was Pop. My brothers children called Mom and Pop Grandma and Grandpa.

Brothers children called MY G-Mom OLD Mama and she loved it and my grands called my Mom Great Granny and I am called GiGi by my great grands and my hubby was Grandpa to all they call my EX Grandpa Valentine.

There think I have listed all of them Oh I am Granny to my grands both bio and step. In my heart they are all MINE
