Grandma and Grandpa Name Alternatives

When I was in the hospital after delivering our baby, my parents and in-laws were sitting in the waiting room deciding what they each wanted to be called by their grandchild.  They each picked their name and they all ended up picking a different one. My Swanky Baby now calls our parents Grandma, Grandpa, Pops and Mimi! Do your parents each have different titles?

Recently on the Ellen show, NeNe Leakes from The Real Housewives of Atlanta talked about her grandchild being born last year.  She also told her that isn't a grandma, but a glamma. Many grandparents choose names that work best for them instead of the usual Grandma and Grandpa title.

Here are some alternative names to Grandma and Grandpa from babycenter.com, in case your family is looking for something different to be called.
