Need A GRANDparent Name & Don’t Want Grandma Or Grandpa?


Don’t want the standard grandparent name? Say no to ‘Grandma’ and ‘Grandpa’! Here are plenty of new choices for your consideration.

According to the blog site, SheKnows, most grandparents agree that having grandchildren is the most satisfying life experience you can have, but being called “Grandma” and “Grandpa”? Well, not everyone is so satisfied with those traditional names.

Today’s grandparents are seeking fresh new names — Gwyneth Paltrow says mom Blythe Danner wanted to be called Woof (although she settled for Lalo), while Kris Jenner prefers “Lovey,” for example — and some of the names they have their grandchildren call them are seriously adorable.

From traditional names for grandma like Bubbie, to fun trendy nicknames for grandpa like G-Daddy, here are 130 nicknames for grandparents.
