Grandma and Grandpa
then Grandma Kerry (dad tried to get them to call her Granny G LOL)

honestly though no matter what YOU call them the kid will come up with his own name.

Everyone tried to get her to call my dad
Papa (he HATED it but they were determined )
For awhile Bev called my mom Mom Mom

I have absolutely no idea. I haven't even thought about it (which seems odd to me now). In my family we had Papa instead of Grandpa and just Grandmas.

My parents already have four grandkids who call them Grandma and Grandpa. So we will stick with that. I am hoping that my in laws are okay with Nana and Papa.

It's Grandma x2 and Pop Pop/Grandpa here. Their actual grandfathers are both dead now, Pop Pop is my mom's boyfriend. I just let them call him that because he doesn't seem to care (and they don't really talk to him either the one week a year that they see him).

My mom wanted to be called Mamie but I guess it never really stuck with my kids...

I call/called my maternal grandparents Nanny (last name), Grandpa (last name) and my step-grandmother Grandma (last name). Since Nanny and Grandma had the last name (Nanny kept married name), it made that distinction between the two.

For my paternal grandparents, it was Nanny (last name), Grandpa (last name), my adopted grandmother is Nanny (first name), adopted grandfather is Grandpa (last name) - - I believe he passed away when I was 2 or so, so that's just how we refer to him now - - and then my step-grandfather was Papa (first name).

So with kids it would probably be something like that, only less grandparents/less confusing LOL

My mom doesn't want to be called Grandma, and hates the typical Nanny, Nana, Granny, etc. type nicknames. My grandmother is "Mimi". My mom is obsessively googling nicknames for grandparents and made a list. So far her favorite is "Kiki".

She got this from Kim Kardashian, it's what her nephew calls her. *slaps forehead*
My husband's parents are "Grandma and Grandpa", though I am guessing at some point "Grandpa" will change to "Pap Pap". (There is some family history associated with "Pap Pap" on that side, but "Grandpa" can't make up his mind which to use yet. lol)

My mom is "Nana", by her request. I'm not really sure why. She just brought it up out of the blue one day.

Growing up, my grandparents were always just Grandma & Grandpa, sometimes with the family name attached at the end to identify which set of grandparents we were talking about.

My dad wants to be called Opa because he is Dutch. Him and my mom aren't together so she wants to be grandma (the dogs know her as grandma too lol). My MIL hates the title grandma so she wants to be called nana. Not sure about my FIL yet. He is pretty easy going though so he hasn't really said anything.
