    On one side of the family it's Yiayia (or Grams) and Papou (Or Grandpa), while the other side is Granny (or Manoush) and Babo (and GG, my great grandmother) :bigsmile:

    I always called my grandma Nana. Since my siblings started having kids their little ones call my mom Ninny.

    Mine were both Grandma. I'm Emma...oldest grandchild's way of saying Grandma when he learned to talk. Now, everyone calls me Emma. My Sis-n-law is Indian...Squaw-Maw is her name.

    Yaya, but you don't get to pick. Whatever that baby calls you will be music to your ears.

    Haha! I have a "Nan". My son calls my mom "Mimi" (we tried to call her "Grammy" - he didn't go for that...). I used to have a "Speed" (my mom's mom "slowed down" when she got older - we went with an "opposite nickname"). Congrats on being a Grandma!
