What do you call your grandparents? Grandparents’ names are often from agrandchild’s mispronunciation. My grandfather is James W. Diverty, Sr. 94 yrs old and I call him "PaPa." My beloved grandmother "Norni" went home to be with the Lord on April 1, 1992 and I became a grandmother 7 weeks later. I am now known as "Norni" to my grandchildren.

My first grandchild called me "GA GA" and I thought, "that’s different." I also was only 40 years-old at the time and wasn’t crazy about being called "Grammy, Gram or Granny." That just wasn’t me! So I answered to GA GA, which turned into Gaga and when her brother came along he of course called me the same.

Now they are 9 yrs. and 6 yrs. and people just kind of look at me when they hear my "name" called. I, on the other hand, kind of enjoy it. The children have suggested changing it, but we can’t for the life of us come up with anything that sounds comfortable.

Hi! I’m just a little different spelling of the standard "grandma." I’m Gramma to my two granddaughters.

Hi. I am just adding my names. My grandparents were Gran and Pop. Another grandfather was Granpoppa. In our family there has also been Nan, Nanna, Ma, Pa and Da. Now I have to find something to be called when my grandchild is born soon.

Happy Thanksgiving from Boston .. to you and yours. What a truly NEAT web site .. and as a 1st Time Grandmother come June 1999 .. your suggestions are wonderful. I always referred to my Grandmother as .. "Nanny".

Warm regards, HM

My grandparents were called "Granny" and "Grumpy" and were very dear to us. We learned about the seven dwarves much later and always thought it was funny that one of them had the same name as our grandfather!
