Am looking for an unusual name for my new grandchild to call me. The old standby names just won't do. I would love some suggestions and to hear what others in my generation are being called.
Thanks for writing to Grandboomers.com. Developing a name to be called by your grandchildren appears to be difficult for many Grandboomers. None of us feel old enough to be "Grandma" or "Grandpa"...yet, we are. Certainly, GrandPam would fit. One way other Grandboomers have solved this situation is to call upon names and words in their ethnic background that identify you as grandparent in a pleasing manner. Remember, the name you choose should be easy for the child to pronounce.
