Does anyone use any alternatives besides grandpa? My stepfather is excited about becoming a grandfather but isn't excited about being called grandpa .. he thinks it makes him sound too old .. he's only 42. I can't think of anything else besides pop or pop pop .. he's not too crazy about them either. Any suggestions?? He's full blown Italian so I was trying to find how to say it in Italian also .. anyone know that?

My friends child calls her grandpa which is kind of different but his name is Tim and the G is for grandpa. So its grandpa Tim (GT). I think its cute.

Well... when my 3 year old was born, I was determined that my mom and dad were going to be called Grammy and Grandfather. When Alivia started talking, she named them herself :) They are now Mae and Tar-Tar. kids say the darndest things. I thought that was really cute though. I don't know of many grandparents out there with names as original as that!

My daughter calls my dad PaPa. She calls my father in law Grand Dad. My friends kids call their g-pa Nonno. Why dont you wait until your child comes up with something on his/her own. A gal that works with me is in her late 40's and her granddaughter called her Bob instead of grandma. So now that is what all the grandkids call her. I think it is so cute when they think of their own name of a relative.
