A new way to say Grandmother and Grandfather!

Grandmother. Grandfather. Gramma. Gran'pa. Nana. Pop-pop. Whichever name they go by, it translates into love! In fact, grandchildren will often make up unique names for their grandparents, whether derived from a simple mispronunciation or a creative use of nicknames, based on the grandparent's given name.

In honor of Grandparents Day, and grandparents around the world, we've included a fun list of how to say "Grandmother" or "Grandfather" in multiple languages, listed alphabetically below. At the very least, it's one more thing you can share with your grandparents to make them proud! (Hey, you may even get a gift out of it! You know how they love to spoil you...)
