I don’t have paternal grandparents and my maternal grandfather is the scum of the earth who I’ve never met. The only grandparent I have is my maternal grandmother who I call grandma. 

DH’s maternal grandparents are Oma and Opa
Paternal were Nana and Pop-Pop I believe.

I love some of these.

I went with the boring “Grandma and Grandpa.”

But my husband calls his “Amma and Papa.”

I have a friend whose father is a high school football coach, so all his grandkids call him “Coach,” which I think is super cute.

@ MsPanda : Love bikerpa!!

We’re Russian so I call my all my grandparents Babushka and Dedushka.  When I was little I had the habit of calling them by their first names only.  Not sure where I picked that up or when it stopped. 

My FI’s family is Italian and his nephew is starting to call FI’s mom Nonna.

I’m Mamie, and my Fiance is Granddaddy. We wanted his name to be completely different from my xh, who is Papa.

My mother is Granny, and my dad was Pop. I had Grandmother and Granddaddy, and Granny Orise and Granddaddy Max. My Fiance had a PawPaw Lastname and MoMo Lastname, and a Grandma Otherlastname.

All of my grandparents are long dead but when they were alive I called my Mom’s parents Grandma and Grandpa and my Dad’s parents Grandma Alyce and Grandpa George.  My little nephew calls my parents Grandpa Fred and Grandma Tish, it’s cute!
