Emmy
My daughter didn't want my granddaughter to call me Grammy so....Emmy was the only nickname that i ever had and it was given to me by my late Father. Not only sweet but touching i think.
- Mary (Halifax, Ma)
Ebi and Oji
Our entire family are ardent sushi fans and we liked the Japanese word "Oji" for Grandfather. However, Grandmother in Japanese was too difficult so we came up with "Ebi" which is actually Sushi shrimp and it works great!
- Carol

Frauna
I have twin three-year-old granddaughters, and while they could both say 'grandma', Abby one day started calling me "Frauna." I loved it then and I love it now! she calls her other grandma "nonnie", so we each have our own name.
- Pam (Akron, OH)
Fi Fi
My aunt (only 8 yrs. my senior) called my grandfather DaDa, which I so aptly pronounced "Fa Fa", and eventually evolved into Fi Fi (sounds like "popeye".
