    Re: A name for the "grandmother"

    I'm glad to see Gigi/GiGi come up in each response because that's the name/"title" my daughter has been considering. I thought GiGi might refer to Great-Grandma, but it was confirmed on the website Jill suggested that GiGi is a name for Grandma. I will pass this along to my daughter. Thanks so much!

    I love GiGi! :-)

    Mamie, Mimi, Mee Maw, Nona, Oma (German), and Ya Ya (Greek) are all sweet ones, too!

    Good luck, Nana Ellen!
    Cici is a good idea too. Thanks, lemon!

    No problem! Hope Catherine finds something perfect!

    I think Gigi is a great idea :)

    Grandma in another language could work, too - Meme (may-may) (French) or Oma (German) are sweet.
