    Re: My Parent's doesn't wanna be called Grand. HELP!!

    When daughters f.i.l. became a grandfather he didn't want to be called anything like grandfather said 'just call me by my first name', duh!

    However, his d.i.l. started calling him Papa Fish, it fits him like a glove because he is a keen fisherman and he loves it!

    My parents wanted to be called Grammie & Grampie but the first grandchild (now 14) called my mom Teme, completely out of the blue. So everyone calls her Teme even all the little kids my parents know. Haha another grandchild couldn't say grampie so he just said "P" hahaha

    Seems like no grandparent's go by 'grand' these days! I think in some cases it's because the great-grandparents are still alive and already have that title. Here's some youngish grandparent names I know of...

    MiMi
    GiGi
    YaYa
    Honey
    Sweetie
    Mumsy
    Mamie
    Mim
    Gogo
    Nana

    Pop
    Poppy
    A lot of the men I know go by versions or derivatives of their real name, ie Tpop, Mo,etc.

    I'm not a mom yet, but I have recently started calling my father "Daddums" just to tease him for being such a grumpy frowner (like Sweetums from the Muppets). It's a keeper!
