I call my grandparents Nonna and Pap Pap. My mom isn’t a grandparent yet.

Fiance calls his grandmother grandma and his parents are nee-nee and pap to his little niece.

I called both my grandfathers “Papa” and both my grandmothers “Grammy.”

My daughter calls my father “Papa” and she calls my mother “Mimi.”

She calls my husband’s mother “Beegee” and his father “Brian” (his first name haha!)

Mine are Nana and Grampa, and Mana (Mahna) and Pap. I dunno FI’s..but our nephews call his parents “Grampa” and “Vovo (?)” or “Grandma” interchangeably. I want my dad to be Papa! 🙂

I just call them Grandma and Grandpa, but i’ve heard so many different names!

For grandmothers:


Mee-Maw (or other variations, Ma-Maw, Maw-Maw, etc.)




For grandfathers:

Pop Pop




For my family we just always used “Grandma and Grandpa *Lastname*” but more people are using first names now, I think.

I call my mom’s parents Nanny & Papa and called my Dad’s mom “Ammama” because I couldn’t say grandmama.

My mom has apparently already got dibs on “Nana” when we have kids. Not sure about the rest. Lol. My dad will prob be “Pops” because that’s what my brother calls him. Lol.

My paternal grandparents are Grandma & Grandpa (or Gram and Gramp)

Maternal grandparents are Nana and Gee (hard “g” sound – it was all my oldest cousin could say when she was little and it stuck!)

Mum’s parents: Grandma and Grandpa

Dad’s parents: Nana and Grandad.

My parents are not grandparents yet but I think they will be Grandma and Grandad.  I thought it was the grandparents who get to choose why they want to be called?  You should ask your parents what they want to be called.
