Did (Do) Your Grandparents Have A Special Name For You?

My mother's grandmother used to call her Jo as in short for Joyce.  My grandmother only called me by my first name, but for as long as I can remember I was always my grandfather's 'Little Angel'.  Even now that he is 96 and I am 51, when I walked in and woke him up this afternoon he said, "Hey, how is my Little Angel today?"  

I know that I don't have too many years left with him.  He apologizes every time that I go and see him at the VA that he is not much company because he can't hear well even with hearing aids and he can't see.  I just tell him not to worry.  We spent most of my life living many states apart and now that he is near, I want to just be able to look at him, even if he is sleeping.

My Grandpa Ben used to call me Squeaky. I was the only one of 9 grandkids with a nickname from him so I was convinced I was the favorite!

He died in 1979 when I was 17. I miss him still.

My grandpa Howard always pulled on my pigtail and asked if I'd been a pretty good Irishman. He did it with all the granddaughters.

My grandfather always called me "tough nut", my grandmother called me "Angel" sometimes. My maternal grandparents passed away before I was born.

Paternal grandparents had a lot of names for me, not pretty or nice ones tough.

Maternal ones, my grandma used to call me Cherry because I was born crying at the top of my lungs, I was red like a cherry. My grandpa used to call me Baby Lou because my mother is Lousille and I am Lousille too. Mom was Big Lou and I was Baby Lou.
