Gramms is a classic! Love to hear of the family tradition. Something so homey and comforting about "Gramm's house"

That's a cute one! I call one of my grandma's Jo-Jo (Joanne is her name). One goes by "YaYa." The variations are quite cute and they certainly stick. Thanks for sharing Liz!

The story goes that my grandmother wanted to be called Grandy. Unfortunately my infant tongue could not quite master Grandy. So she became Gangy and the name stuck for the rest of her life!
