98 Easy Nicknames For Grandparents - With Meanings

Naming a grandparent is a unique experience for each family. Some grandparents already have nicknames in mind, while others are satisfied with 'Grandma' and 'Grandpa.'  Then of course a baby turns into a toddler and actually develops the capability of speaking, and all plans go out the window! Toddlers tend to mispronounce grandparent names and create a name all of their own. It's funny though, some grandparents are just determined to find the perfect nickname! Who can blame them, really? If you are on the hunt for a name that fits your personality or family, look no farther! My Baby's Heartbeat Bear collected nicknames from across the globe and then all of those unique names that are just too cute to pass up. gma16
