    What do you call your grandmother/grandfather?

    Inspired by the grandmother's names post, I was wondering what everyone calls their grandparents?

    I am currently expecting the first grandchild of my parent's and dh's parents. I call my grandparents Nana/Papa and Grandma/Grandpa. I know my mother would not like to be called Grandma, Nana, or Bubbe. That said, do you guys call your grandparents anything other than just grandma/pa?

    My maternal grandparents I just call "Grandma" and "Grandpa."
    My paternal, however, are Grandma Margie and Grandpa Spike. His name is Carlyle, but as a kid I just could NOT say it!
    My maternal great grandparents were called by both their grandchildren and their great grandchildren as, "Grandmother and Grandfather Burch". They were insistent on that! No "Grandma" and "Grandpa."
