... I chose to be called "Nana" which is what I called my own grandmother. I figured it would be easy for them to pronounce at an early age, and it would be a nice tribute to my Nana as well.
– anpusmama

My grandson was calling me Mommy too so we had him reverse it to Mema — I love it.
– mematomany

My granddaughter Abby has called me Maca since she started talking and it has stuck. I really think it is cute. I also have two new grandsons so I can not wait to see what name they will call me. It is all up to them, that is what will make me happy. Michelle / Grandma / Maca

My precious granddaughter Kaidance began calling me "YahYah" when she was about 10 mo.old. Little did we know at the time it is the misspelled version of the Greek name for grandmother. All I know is it is music to my heart when all of the little ones call out to me using YahYah!
