My parents had specific names that they tried to get my nephew to call them. He has renamed them Bo Bo and Jo Jo. They respond.

Grandma and Grandpa.  That’s what I called my grandparents. I’ve heard people call grandparents: mimaw, mawmaw, mimi, mammy, papaw

My nieces call my mom, Oma (Grandmother in German) and my dad, Pop.

My grandparents were Nana and Papa, and I know that’s what my parents will want to be called.  Future Mother-In-Law will want to be Bestemor (father’s mother, in Norwegian); FI’s grandmother on his mother’s side was Mormor.  FI’s grandparents on his dad’s side were Nonnie and Pop…I kind of hope Future Father-In-Law doesn’t want to be Pop, but he can pick what he wants and I will follow his lead.

My parents will be grandma and grandpa, as that’s what I called both sets of grandparents. My husband’s parents are already Nanni and Poppy to my BIL’s daughter, so they’ll take that for us too.

I think this is something that the grandparents decide… you might be stuck with Dada!

We don’t have kids, but my FH calls his grandfather “pup-pup” (but writes it Popp-Popp), and his grandmother “mum-mum” but writes it (Momm-Momm).  I’d never heard “pup-pup” before.  His maternal grandmother is “Nana.”

I didn’t know my maternal grandfather, the paternal was “grandpap.”  My grandmothers were “Go-Go” and “grandma.”

I’m not pregnant but when we do have a baby it’s likely that it will be the first on both sides.   I think my husbands parents will go by Grammy and Grandpa since that’s what he called all of his grandparents (and what my in laws refer to themselves as when they talk to my dog!).  My mom will probably be Nana and I think my dad will be Pappou which is Greek.

@PrncssDva: I like that.  It’s cute and different.
