Best Name Ever

What do your grandchildren call you? When my grandsons were just starting to talk, they called me, "Gra". I loved being called "Gra". As they got older it changed to, "Grama" and then, "Grandma" - and I love them all.

A few years back, USA Today shared a BabyCenter survey of the most popular names for grandmas, and grandpas, too. They are -

For grandmothers:
1 Grandma 49%
2 Nana 25%
3 Grammy 11%
4 Mimi 6%
5 Nanny 6%
6 Gram 3%
7 Gran 1%
8 Other 41%
For grandfather:
1 Grandpa 47%
2 Papa 28%
3 Papaw 9%
4 Pop-Pop 6%
5 Poppy 5%
6 Pop 4%
7 Granddad 4%
8 Gramps 2%
9 Other 28%
Whatever you are called, I'm sure, like me, you love your grandma name! And in case you are wondering, our grandsons call their grandpa, "Poppa" - and he loves it!
