I'm called grandma by my 3 year old grandson, I have another grandson that is 7 months old and I want him to call me nana out of respect for my nana that passed away.

We have all different ones! I called my maternal grandparents Nana and Papa, my paternal's grandma and grandpa. Our kids call my parents Mamaw and Pa and paternal's Grandma Sherry and Grandpa Dick. Now we've become grandparents to our adorable grandson Luca (three months ago) and refer to ourselves as Grams and Gramps. He is going to call his paternals Grammy and Papa.

When my first grandchild was born, I wanted her to call me Nana but when she started talking she decided to name me Noni which actually I like better.

In my family, we have a bit of everything but I've already decided that, should the opportunity arise in 12+ years, I will be a Mawmaw. It is a great title - spelled badly for it's pronunciation which is almost Momo.

Hi! Since I found out one of my two daughters was having her first baby, I've been Granny. Even my bonus 15 year old granddaughter, joined family when she was six, finally called me Granny this year. I was thrilled. She called me Grandma Wenger before that. I have five grandies, three girls and two boys.

My daughter had her first little one when she was just 16 ( I was 37) So my husband and I are called Nana and Papa...I wasn't quite ready for "grandma". She has since married and now has two boys...Aizik nearly 5 and Ethyn nearly 2. We love being grandparents! After the initial shock wore off...we realize what a joy granbabies are!

I have 8 grandchildren, the oldest nearly 14, the youngest 11 months. With the first grandaughter came the title of Grandma. I preferred Grandma to Nana and it worked well as I didn't want to be known as "the other Nana" which her other grandmother is known... To begin, Tayla couldn't say Grandma so I was Mam-ma. Unfortunately her day care teacher corrected her and she came home one day saying Grandma...still a fantastic title. I love having grandchild, they are a delight.

In my family the grandparents are called Oma for grandma and Opa for grandpa. This is German, and since I was born and raised in Germany, I will keep this tradition. At least my grandson will know that I am special to him.

I am Nonna (Italian). Grandma and Abuela (I grew up in Chile) sounded old so I searched for another language. I like being Nonna. :) I have a grandson who turned 3 in June and a granddaughter is due mid-October.

I am 52 and have a 2 1/2 + year old granddaughter. I wanted to be something other than Grandma or Granny. My mother wanted her grandchildren to call her Grandmom, but the oldest one couldn't, so she told him to just call her Honey. This one stuck, and we all love it! I wanted something like that so, I picked Nonnie.

I am also a Nana or grandma. Depends on what of grandchildren are around. Really confusing when they are all together. Nana, grandma, Nana no grandma. See!!!
