Grandparent Names and Nicknames from the U.S. Deep South

_____________________________________________


In days gone by, most grandparents were called by traditional grandparent names: Grandmother, Grandfather, Granny, Grandpa, Mammaw, Gramps. Now we find modern grandparents snubbing those names for something more clever, more youthful.

NOTE: Heaven help those children who dare to call a grandmother "Big Mama."

Included in this list below are grandparent names and nicknames that Ye Editor has added to her notebook in the past few months. Got any to add? Write us at YE EDITOR'S ADDRESS.

Postscript: Many of these also make good dog and cat names!
