"Dad" in another language?

We speak English at home, and dh is "dad".

My dad wants to be called "ATI" which means "dad" where he is from. It's what I call him so its kind of weird to me. He should be "Star ATI" which literally translates to "old dad". He doesn't want to be "old".

My dh doesn't really care because it sounds nothing like dad but it still means the same thing. What would you do?

If your husband isn't bothered by it then it wouldn't really bother me if I were you.

No. My mother wanted to be called "Mima" instead of grandma. In Spanish, that means "my mom". We aren't even Spanish (well, my sister is half Cuban but that's another story, lol). No, I would not let my child call thier grandparent a "parent" in any language just because they don't want to be old. How vain and what would you be teaching your child about aging, you know?
