What do you call your grandparents? Lola and Lolo (Tagalog for grandma and grandpa).

What do your kids/nieces/nephews call your parents? I have no idea what my Mom or my grandma would like to be called. I doubt she wants to be called Lola — it sounds too old for her.

My in-laws should be easier: farmor and farfar (father’s mother and father’s father in Swedish).

Both sets are now called Grandma and Grandpa, but when I was little, one set was Mammy and Papaw. Actually, I guess I still call that grandfather Papaw : )

My maternal grandmother is “Granny”, maternal grandfather, “Grandpa”. I never knew my paternal grandmother, but my paternal grandfather I call “Paw-Paw”. But I really love cultural names for grandparents; FI’s parents are “Oma” and “Opa” (German) to our niece and two nephews.
