So far we only have names for the in-laws: Oba(san) and Ogi(san). It's Japanese for Grandmom and Granddad.

Re: what do your lo's call their grandparents?

My mom is Gran, my dad was Papa.

We're having issues with MIL. She has stressed over what he would call her since literally the DAY we told her we were pregnant with him. She doesn't want it to sound old or stuffy (she is vain and also crazy). Right now she says she wants him to call her Lori, but I have a problem with that because usually when you're young you don't call adults by their first names, and I think it would be confusing to teach him that and then have grandmother telling him to call her Lori. So I don't know what to do about that yet. I'm not too worried because he barely talks as it is, so it will be awhile yet before he says her name anyway I think.

Re: what do your lo's call their grandparents?

lol, kids come up with their own names sometimes.... My parents are Nina and Papa. We tried to get ds to call her Grammy, too hard- so then it was supposed to be Nana and she has been Nina ever since.
My in-laws are Grandpa and Granny (her preference)
and my maternal grandparents are Great-grandpa and Grandma Esther (my step-grandmother)
My favorite name was for my paternal grandfather, we lived with him and took care of him until he died from cancer 3 years ago, he was Grandpoo (sans Oobi). DS still asks when he is coming back from Heaven to visit.

Re: what do your lo's call their grandparents?

When I was pregnant with Jacob we decided that my parents would be called Grammy and Pops. My dad is still Pops, although my daughter insists she calls him Popsy. lol Grammy never stuck because as soon as Jake could talk he called her Mimi! Mimi it stayed!

Then my DH's mom, claimed she was too young to be a grandma so she refused any of the stereotypical grandma names and is called Cozy now. Yeah...I don't know either. She says it was a childhood nickname, I still don't get that either. lol

In our experience the grandparents generally end up accepting whatever comes out of their precious grandchildren's mouths!

Nana, Grandpa, Grandma, PaPa, and "TB" for Auntie B
