    Lucky you to have this "worry"--I can't wait to have a grandchild. I hope to be called Nanny. My mom's mom was Nanny, her father was Poppa though he referred to himself as Pappy. My dad's mom started as Bobodan (don't know how) but about 7 years later, she changed to Grandma. Her husband was grandpa. My daughter has/had my mom (nanny) which she often shortened to Nan. My stepdad was Bobby (my mom's name for him), my dad was Grandpa (sometimes Gampa), my stepmother was Grandma, my MIL was Abuela, FIL was Abuelo (ex is Puerto Rican). When ex remarried, DD was older so uses first names for her stepmother's parents. Whew. Now, my DD calls my DH's father "abesan," a name I started and he loves as he loves all things Japanese and his name is Abe.

    They don't talk yet but sofar we are being refered to as oma and opa since both DH and I are from Europe originally or bubu in the native tongue of some of my children that came home by adoption. I often refer to myself as grandma. I guess we'll see which one will stick when these little ones get big enough. My mother, oma to my children, passed away almost 7 years ago and I find it hard to be refered to as oma eventhough originally I was all for it. She was a wonderful grand mother.

    I'm called Meemaw and my hubby is called Wayne. We could never figure out where the Meemaw came from or why our first grandchild called Wayne by his first name. Whatever they call you, it's just the sweetest sound ever when they say it.

    For your hub, if he wants to use his name, maybe Grandpa His-first-name??? Whatever you choose, get your choice known so the other side doesn;'t nab the ones you like!!

    My grandson started calling me grammy and so it began. I love it.
    Always in Stitches,

    So blessed in the opportunity of life, the gifts of nature, and the choice to do good to others. I'm thankful for this day.

    I became a grandmother at 35. I left it up to my children and grandchildren to decide what would be appropriate for their family. My grandchildren call me Grandma and my mom they call Grandma the Great. This came about with our first grandchild because she just couldn't get great-grandma but could call her grandma the great.

    I answer to "Nana" or "Hey, Nana"; however, I prefer, "Love you, Nana!"

    Myys oldest grandson and only granddaughter, they live in IL, call me grandmommy.Reason, when grandson was starting to talk he would say grandpa for one of his grandfather that was living with them from time to time. But he would also call me grandpama. I was able to get him to say grand and them mommy after that and that is where grandmommy came from. My 4 grandsons that live near me call me grandme. My daughter started it and when the 2 younger boy came around they called me grandme and their other grandmother grandma. I just insisted that they not call me granny. The two older ones here do call their other grandmother granny. Makes it easy for all of us to know which grandma they are talking about.

    It is Momo down here in Alabama. Same thing my kids called my mother. Worked out great, my mother was states away and when necessary she was Momo Elaine for clarification. I love it.

    My oldest grandson (who is 12 now) called me Mom because my daughter and him lived with me until he was 2 and he heard her calling me mom. Then when his brother (who is now 8) came along and started talking he called me mamaw so now I am mamaw. The oldest calls his daddy's mom "nanny" and the youngest calls his daddy's mom "grammy". My husband is papaw and the other granddad is "poppy" and one is "papaw cc". The kids usually figure out what they want to call you in their own way.

    In the family there was already a Gram, Grammie, Nana, Gramma, and MeeMaw and Mamoo - so i became Mimi...which was my brother's nickname for me when we were kids. My DH is Pop.

    Nothing beats-"Grandpa & Grandma-we only have one Grandson, and has always called us this-gives us a special feeling-we were there when he was born, and now there with him when his mother died last November-try Grandpa and Grandma on for a saying and see if it fits you.

    My husband is "Gumps" to his granddhildren. I arrived to the family late, so some of the older grandchildren call me by my first name, while the younger ones use either "Grammy" or "Bubbe" (my personal choice).

    I am Mom-mom and my husband is Pop-pop. My oldest granddaughter came up with these names when she started talking. The other grandparents are Nana and Poppy.

    When I first became a grandmother, I wanted to be called grandma. The problem was that my gd could not pronounce it, so we are called mawmaw and pawpaw.

    Incidentally, I just became a great grandmother in August. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what she might call us? I have no idea.

    My my grandson was almost 2 he called me Gama "Howse" (yes, the w sound!). One day he was having a fast talking fit and Gama came out Maga. He is now 11; all grandkids call me Maga. Even their friends do!!
