My mom is having a fit bc she cant decide on a name she wants to be called... this is her first grandbaby! My grandparents are Granny & Mimi and SO's mother is Gigi... my mother wants to do Cici but she said there are too many ee-ee names already lol

So what names do the grandmas in your family have?

My mom is Nona, MIL is (or wants to be) Grandma or Grammy.

Make sure your mom knows that most likely, your child will decide what her name is, not her.

My mom is not a "Grandma" kind of gal!  My son calls her SuSu... Short for her name, Suzy.
