Default Referring to Grandparents - What do your kids/future kids call them?

For those of you that have children (or plan to have children), what do your children call your parents (or what will you want your children to call them)? My son calls my mom "Mama" and my dad "Papa." Honestly, I wish he would call them Grandma and Grandpa.

My son calls my father "grandpa" and my mother "grandma". All my nieces and nephews call them those names also.

My daughter has a few different grandparents so she calls them all by different names:

My dad - Grandpa
My dad's wife - Jacque (she doesnt want to be called grandma )
My dad's dad - Great Grandpa
My grandma - Great Grandma
My mom (when she was alive) - Grandma

Her dad's dad - Grandpa Bo Bo
Her dad's mom - Granni
Her dad's step dad - Grandpa Greg
Her dad's grandpa (when he was alive) - Great grandpa Bob
Her dad's grandma - Great grandma Paula



She hasn't met my husband's parents yet...so I am not sure what she is going to call them...but knowing her...she will probably just call them by their names

My dad - Grandpa Bear
My mom- Nana
My stepmom- Grandma

R's Dad - Grandad
R's mom- idk they have never met
R's stepmom- Grandma

They also have unique nicknames for my sisters their aunts. Yaya and Mimmie. My sister now plan in having their grandchildren call them those names.

Btw I called my grandfather 'Papa' too

My oldest niece who is now 29, started calling my Mom 'GranGran' when she was a baby. That has stuck so all my 27 nieces/nephews (and my children) call her the same or they shorten it to'Gran'.

When I was growing up, I had 2 sets of grandparents.... they were all called grandma and grandpa.
Honestly, I don't understand all the 'titles' given today. I have 2 nephews... they have a grandma, grandpa, Nana, Papa, Mawmaw, Pops, granny, etc... It's weird to me!
