I just wanted your input into the whole grandmother/ nana names
So my mum has been a nana/ nanny for 18+ years now, and would like to keep that name for when we have children, which is fine by me.
However my mil keeps saying things like "I'm too old to be called grandma" "I don't know what to call myself when you have a baby" ect. Now from my understanding, and the way it is with my family and dh family, is that the females parents are usually called nana or nanny etc and the males parents are the grandma.
What are your thoughts on this? And do you have any alternative names to suggest? I just know my mum is funny with names and I don't want her to have to share her title (she is very old fashioned with traditions). I think this is fair enough though, she wants her name to be special and her to be the only one that gets called that by our. Children, I also want that for my mil. I just wish my mil was more open the being called grandma or grannie or something!
