    I'm not sure you always get to choose. Kids have a way of saying something before they talk well and then it sticks. I know a lady called "Mammy" because her first grandchild couldn't say Mamaw. She didn't love it at first, but now the great grandkids call her that, too.

    My kids call my mother Mamaw. They call my father Old Bob. He started that when the first one was born and it stuck. He has grandkids from 4 to 25 calling him Old Bob.

    When the first one came, I was Nana. Then came the second and he already had a Nana (her other grandkids call her that) and I didn't want him to think anything that I did came from his other "Nana" so to him I am Grammy...lol I get a little confused sometimes on who I am. I just hope they don't have issues...she's my Nana...no, she's my Grammy! They are only about a year apart.

    My husband and I are G - Ma and G - Pa. Ever since my oldest grand started talking, this is what we have been called, don't know why he started calling us that - but it works.

    My oldest grandchild called me Mayma as did some of the others that came along. Some
    call me Gramma. I have a brother and sister in law who are called Sweet Mama and Sweet
    Papa by their grandchildren. I won't comment on that.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    We were supposed to be Oma and Opa, the German names. My first grandchild decided we were O-Mommy and O-Poppy and then ended up with Oni and Opi so that's who we turned out to be. Never heard any others called that so i guess we're original.

    Memaw, Mammaw, and Grandma. They each chose on their own a name for me. I just want them to call me.

    I think you're over-worrying the situation. When the time comes for that grandchild to start talking, you'll be so happy to hear whatever he calls you.

    It's the most fun to let the grand kids decide what they want to call you -----

    My husband and I are grandpa and grandma, the other set of grandparents are Oma and Papa. But my one grandson who just turned 6 still calls me grandpa (I just checked myself and it looks like I'm a she).

    Until the Grands could talk we were called lots of names. 10-25 YO all calls us Gramma and Grampa. Oldest Granddaughter lives with us and when she leaves us a note she signs it Gma and Gpa. Our two Great Granddaughters call us GGma and GGpa. Their other Grandparents are Korean and they call them those names.
    I'm with others any name is okay as long as they call me.

    I am "Noni" to all my GK's and GGK's...and I love it! They know exactly who's being referred so they can relate. My Mom was "Nana"; one of my DD's is "NaaNaa", the other is "Meemaw" (which I don't care for, but hey, whatta I know?)
    and one of MY DGM's was "Gramma" and the other, "Grandma". I do have to admit that I have an older DGS who sometimes slips up and calls me his "gun-totin" granny"...I mean, c'mon! Just because we shoot together??? Whatever name we all go by, those "babies" know who to run to....
    If you feel like you're special...it's 'cause you are!

    Nice to see what everyone is called- some cute names there! I am not a grandmother but wanted to mention the old Irish title- Mamó- which I think is cute! It's pronounced 'momMOH'
