I am pregnant and due in December and it will be my parents first grandchild! They are ecstatic but my mom is torn over names for the baby to call her. She doesn't like Grandma at all so she's trying to think of something else and I was hoping you ladies could give me some suggestions of what your grandkids call you! Thanks.

I'm not a grandma (just became a mother in fact) but here are some names:

Nana
Nonni (pronounced Non-E)
Grandma
Gramsie
Granny
Momsie (which is what my MIL wants to be called although I hate it and she knows that yet refuses to change it!)
Mamaw
Mimi
Grams
Gramie

I think there is a website that has a huge amount of grandparents name ... Just search for it in Yahoo! Hope that this helps

I don't have any kids but my Fiance's sister's kids call his mother Mammy, she doesn't like the name grandma either. My mom has already told me that she wants to be called Big Mama. I don't like either name but oh well.

I grew up calling my grandma "Mema" (pronounced "mee-maw") and my Great-Grandma "Nana". Now that I'm having my first (and since my Nana has passed), my mom will be the new Nana to my kids.

My siblings and I also call one of our other grandma's "Grammie". I think I might have my kids use that for my Step-mom.

One of my grandmothers was Grand Mother and the other one was Oma with the grandfather being Opa. Those are German for GM & GF. My aunt is a Ganny because her grandson couldn't say Granny.
