Advice For Choosing An Awesome Great Grandma Name

We hope the list above has given you some inspiration in your search for a wonderful name for a great grandma.

Some other things to think about when choosing a nickname for your great grandmother include:

  • Check the lady in question likes the name and consider letting them rule out anything they particularly dislike.
  • If you’re lucky enough to have more than one great grandma, as well as grandmas, make sure each one has a different nickname that is unique to them.
  • Remember that the nickname doesn’t necessarily have to link directly to the fact she’s a great grandma, so in theory any grandma nickname could also work.
  • Lastly, don’t worry too much about it, and remember that sometimes it’s better if your children decide what to call their great grandma, even if they are still babies or toddlers, as that will make the name super personal and meaningful.
