Grandma Names

I just became a grandma in December. I don't feel old enough to be called "Grandma". Does anyone have any suggestions other than Nana? That's what her other grandma wants to be called.

Thanks for your help! :)

  • Whatever your first grandchild comes up with. Both of my kids call their grandpa's Poppa First Name*, but with some VERY minor variations to indicate which Poppa they're talking about.

    Both of their grandmother's are Gramma First Name*.

    *I try not to use real names.

  • you will find though that you will go by what the kids call you.. my aunt is called bubbles. the grandkids did that and noone really knows why and to this day they call her bubbles. so for all you know you may be bubbles or maybe apple lol.

  • I'm planning on being called Nonni. (Pronounced like mommy, only with N's instead of M's)

    But I hope that doesn't come for at least another 5 years.     :-)

  • GAGA, but honestly when that little grandchild comes up to you and says "gramma" you will love it!
