More GRAND "G" Nicknames Here!
Gammy
When my oldest daughter was born, I was lucky to still have my grandmother living; Ellie called my mom "Mamaw" and my grandma "Nanaw". Now that Ellie has made me a grandma and I am lucky enough to still have my mother living, my grandma nickname is "Gammy" which allowed my mother to remain "Mamaw" to our beautiful boy Benjamin. I also must add, my husband is a proud PapPap! :)
- Angie Yoder
Gramma Jamma
My grandchildren live in another province and have several sets of grandparents. To keep us straight my daughter invented names with associations.
When I was visiting the children when they were very young, we had a race to see who could get into their pajamas first so we could have a pajama party. Voila – my name was crafted and it stuck.
