    What are your parents going to be referred to by your LO?

    For us:

    MIL: Gran
    FIL: Grandpa

    Dad: Pappy
    Mum: ???

    No idea what name my Mum should use, and either does she. 'Nana' is my gran, and my Nana and Mum are both very young (Mum is in her 40s) so Nana will be around for a lot of LOs life, so she'd like to stay Nana.

    Any ideas for what name we could use? Maybe some sort of derivation of her first name?

    My mom will be Grannie, my dad will be Zaidah (it's Yiddish for grandfather). My MIL and FIL unfortunately have both passed away.

    :rofl:

    I havnt really thought about this, I guess both will just be nan/nanny and grandad! I stilll have both my granparents who will be babys great granparents and neither of them want to be called great nan because it makes them feel really old. But i thought it might confused baby if he called them nan aswell, He would think he has 4 nans!!

    Well, my Mum is reffered to as Lally (my nephew at two couldn't managed Granny Sally and it came out as such) and my Dad is meant to be Grandpa but called Loompa by most grandchildren, and "broombroom" by the youngest as he rides a motorbike!
    DH's parents will probably be Nonna and Nonno.

    Nana and Granda probably. Or Pop, whichever one she picks up on.


    I tutored a little girl once and she called her grandmothers "Big Nanny" and "Little Nanny" haha cause one was tall and one was short :rofl:
