There are plenty of fun options. Some could be based on name (whatever her first name is). And some are just fun options. My mom is Gams. She picked it and I thought it was kinda awkward at first, but it has grown on me, especially since no one else has that name for their grandma. She also debated being "Gramma" and leaving out the "d". I have a good friend whose kids call her MIL "Meeme" and did that on their own (it's pronounced me-m). Very not grandma-like. I have also heard "Noni" and "Oma" which are Italian and German for grandma. And kinda cute in non-old ways.
My mom was also in her 40s when she became a grandma. No one ever believes she is a grandma. She gets called their mom all the time when I am not with her. Lol.
