This question has come up before, but it is always fun to hear the different names for the grandparents.  Also, who chose the name?

My children called their grandparents grandma and pops.

DH's mom is "mimi" and dad is "papaw". My parents are simply grandma and grandpa. But DH is from Kentucky and I'm from Minnesota.

My dad is Granddad and my mom is Mimzy. My husband's mom is Amma and my husband's dad is Mr.Todd (my husband isn't close with him, so he's not really their grandfather in any way besides biology).

Both sets are Grandma and Grandpa... Easier for the kiddos to not get so confused on names. :)
