- Wedding: September 2012 - Southern California
Both of my parents’ parents divorced &/or remarried so I essentially had 4 sets grandparents when I was younger. To differentiate, we called them Grandma/Gradnpa [First Name]. I still have two sets of grandparents & still call them that!
I like the idea of Grandma/pa [Last Name] but I don’t think it would work for DH’s side ..plenty of past & future divorces/last names haha.
We’ll see though. I’m sure our parents & future kids will guide us through this when the time comes ;]

My mom is Mina or Meena or however you want to spell it. The kids totally made it up and we really have no idea what it means. Other than that, it’s grandma or grandpa.

DH’s parents already have 8 grandchildren. So they are Gran and GDad (grandad, but he prefers Gdad.)
My parents will be Nana and Grandpa. I let them choose what they wanted to be called.

I don’t know, a parent picking their own name seems overkill for me. If a kid wants to call their other grandma “nana” to keep things straight, that’s ok. But I just don’t see anything wrong with plain old grandma and grandpa.
(end note: I knew of someone whose kids called their dad Bonga. I have no idea why. And another friend of mine called her grandma Dodo. This I DEFINITELY didn’t understand.)

FI’s parents are already grandparents and go by ‘nanny and grandad’, I’m not sure what my parents would prefer but I think it’ll probably just been ‘granny and grandad’.
I call one of my grandmothers ‘granny’ and the other one ‘nonna’, I have only known one grandad so hes just ‘grandad’ 🙂

Bellagiobride: my daughter calls my mom “abuelita,” my dad “papa”, her dad’s mom “mom-mom,” and her dad’s dad “pop-pop”
Fiance is not her father. She’ll just call his parents Miss (FMIL’s first name) and Mr. (FFIL’s first name)
