We've had threads on this before, with lots of suggestions, that you might be able to find. But if not.... I fancied being called Nonna at the time, but it seemed just a wee bit pretentious for a Northern lass without a drop of Italian blood. So I decided Nana wasn't really too far off There'll be input from the grandchildren anyway - my eldest (3yo) always gives me my full title of Nana Maggie.
I can't say I'd like to be called Bomma. I can imagine what toddlers, and cheeky sons, might make of that.
Hi, One of my friends is going to be a grandmother soon, she is 47 and feels a bit uncomfortable being called grandma.I’ve started researching the web to find alternatives for her. It seems that many people out there have similar concerns. A new trend is using a foreign version like bomma(Flemish) or nonnie(Italian) Many people are using trendy versions like glammy or granny? or nicknames. How do you prefer to be called? Suggestions will be highly appreciated.
