So I’ve known for 25 years that one day I would become a grandparent. Nearly 20 weeks ago I was told my sobs partner was pregnant…….I’m going to be a grandma :)))) Today I find out it’s a boy! I’m going to have a grandson. Happy days ahead for me! Just wondering if anyone out there on MoMs has any unique names for a grandmother. I’m not interested in Nan, Nanny, Nanna, Granny, Grandma, Grandmother. I would like something different. Suggestions???

  • Is any of your family of a European heritage that Grandma or something similar that it is pronouced differently. e.g. Italian, German, French.


  • lol we came up with “g-ma” which is a little more modern,

    i have friends that call the actual mum MUMMY and the grandma MUMMA. lol that is a little confusing because you hear mummmm!!! and they both turn around lol


  • I have thought of letting little Riley James choose what to call me, that’s a few years away however. So in the meantime, I want to be able to sign something on cards etc. I like mee maa


  • If you have a certain family background from overseas’s see if there is a translation for grandma. My husbands mum like to be called baba (is has a mark above the first a in their languages dictionary) as that means grandma where she is from.


  • Congratulations! It must be wonderful!!
    No ideas about the name. Maybe your grandchild will come up with perfect name himself. :-)


  • CONGRATS and best wishes and sending love to the little one.
    How about Mee-maa.
    What ever you choose enjoy and have fun times.


  • Congratulations! From a mums point of view – let the child and their parents work out what to call you – no matter what they choose, Im sure you will be a fantastic grandparent.


  • Congrats and good times ahead! No suggestions, I like traditional names.
