Hi Swistle! I was wondering if you would be kind enough to address Grandparent names on your baby name blog. My mom has just at three months to decide what she would like her first granddaughter to call her and she is having a tough time coming up with the perfect Grandmother name! She is quite picky and does not want to use any name that starts with Grand____, Nana, or Me-maw. Her first name is Robin and recently someone suggested Birdie, which is super cute, but not something my mom would use, if she doesn't even like Grandma! A few names she has considered but has not fallen in love with are Maymay, (surprisingly) Grandmommy, and Nonna. I am wondering what your readers call their grandmothers, to give her more options to think about!
Oh, fun question! I called both my grandmothers "Grandma" (with surname if necessary to differentiate) but many of my friends called their grandmothers "Memere" (pronounced MEM-may).
While looking up how to spell Memere (I still don't know where to put the accents, or how to do the one that goes from up left to down right), I found a link to The Name Nerds's post on this same topic.
What did all of you call your grandmothers?
