    What did/do you call your grandparents?
    What do your children call theirs?
    What about great and step grandparents?

    I called both sets of grandparents Grandma and Grandpa. We're not that creative in my family, I guess. :-) I have a set of step-grandparents and call them Gramz and Gramps.

    I don't have children yet, but my kids will probably use Grandma and Grandpa for my mom and dad, and YeYe and Nai Nai for my husband's parents (as those are the typical Mandarin names). My nephew calls my step-mom Ya Ya, which I think is totally adorable and I'll probably use that for her too with our kids.

    As for great grandparents, unfortunately I never got to meet any of them.

    I had Grandma & Grandpa and Nanny & Grandad. Only one of my great grandparents was still alive when I was born, we called her Nanny Bond (Bond was her surname) She lived in England so I only met her once.

    My children call my parents Grandma & Grandpa and my in-laws Nana & Grandad. They have 2 surviving great grandparents (both on my husbands side) but we only have contact with one of them, Grandma Job. (Job is her surname).

    We called (still do occasionally!) my dads parents Nanny and Grandad Totham and my Mum's mum Nanny Maldon after the places the live Sadly Grandad Maldon died when I was really little so I don't remember him much.
    I joke to my in-laws that when we do have children, they will call them Pops and Grammy
