What names for "Grandmother"?

My mom wants a somewhat unique name. The only common one she really likes is Nana. She also liked Granna, but then the other day she said she wanted a more unique name. Her first name is Paula. Any suggestions?

What about Nonna? Is that widely used?

Honey? My HS History teacher's grandkids called her that.

I think Peetee would be great!

When I am a grandmother, I am going to be Honey, and Luke is going to be Papa Bear!

Anyway, Paula Deen is Grandlady and I love that!

My mom will be KK one day...she is Kathy...I will be thinking of one for Paula!

My mother goes by MoMere - which she incorrectly tells people is french for "my mother".

(Ma Mere would be the correct pronunctiation!)

Kelly's mom goes by Mimi.

Good suggestions so far, minus Andrew's. lol. Nice honey. ;)

Amanda--if I used that way to name my mom (like KK) she'd be PP. Somehow, that just doesn't flow as well. lol!

Nonni
Nana
Oma (Grandmother in German)
Granna (I like this)
Mimi

That's all I've got. Seriously - she's gotta quit being so picky!

Ok, my mom is Nana to Caleb. My best friends boy calls her mom Nana. However, one I REALLY think is cute, my other good friends daughter calls her GM "Yaya" which is greek for grandma. Mimi is another one I know some people use.

This Might Tickle Your Fancy
