    My DH parents were Nana and Granddad, and my parents are Granny and Nandad (Morgan could say granddad it came out Nandad and it stuck :rofl:).

    I had a Nan, Gran and Granddad.

    Well OH mum is going to be Granny, his dad will be Papa

    My dad will be Grandad, my step-mum Nana and my mum will be Oma.

    My mum was wanting to be a granny at first but wanted something different and my brothers partner is Dutch and Oma is like the short dutch word for granny.

    I did double check it just to be sure he wasnt having a laugh:blush:

    And found this site which was quite cool for ideas of different countries words for granny/grandad etc

    well my kids call my dad grandad, and his wife nanny. Same goes for my nan and grandad. They just call them nanny and grandad. My mum didnt wnt to be called grandma or nanny cause it made her feel too old so she chose to be called Nanna B (B being her first name initial)
    My partners mum is called Grandma or granny
