    Or like another poster mentioned something non traditional. Nansta! Okay that was a joke but there's no reason she can't choose something a bit different.

    IMO I actually think Nanna sounds older than Grandma. If it were me I'd be choosing Gran.

    I want to see a little G'ma personally.

    ETA. I just saw G-Dawg as a trendy Grandparents name on a website.

    @twinklify Google! Lola is the Filipino word for grandmother and Pepe is French for grandfather. We are neither Filipino nor French haha but they liked the names. I like them too. DH thinks DD will get teased for it. Pfft

    My grandmothers were nanny ( dads mum) and nan ( mums mum) I've never heard the maternal grandmother gets Nanna before either - my mum is Nanna to all her grandchildren as that's what we called our grandmothers, MIL is grandma purely as DH had called both his grandmothers grandma as that's what their family is used too - wouldn't bother me in the slightest what anyone wanted to be called - as long as they were both fabulous grandmothers to your child I wouldn't think it would really matter
