I’m wondering if other name enthusiasts wanted to sway gparent names a little, like me. Growing up, I called mine Grandma/pa lastname. Weirdly formal! I wanted each set of gparents to have distinct names. [name]MIL[/name] was easy – she’s Italian, so “[name]Nonna[/name].” My mom had a preference for Grammy but it ended up [name]Mimi[/name], which we all love. One grandfather was already established with older cousins as Papa D. (Apparently it’s a southern tradition to call your grandfather “papa.”) My dad also ended up as Papa. So I didn’t quite get my way, but I’m very happy with where we ended up (as are all the gparents).
Anyway, just wondering if gparent names came naturally in your family, or if you tried to “guide” them? What did you end up with?
