My mom wants to be called something different other then grandma, nana, or mimi. Any ideas?

This is her first grandchild and she wants a really cool name. I think its because she has been battling breast cancer and when I got pregnant it was the best medicine for her.

  • My mom's BFF was called Grand. I think it's a great name.
