Some grand names for grandparents

Travel deals

If you are called Grandma or Grandpa, you're No. 1 on the list of top names for grandparents.

The list, compiled by babycenter.com, shows that more than half the families surveyed went for "good ol' favorites Grandma and Grandpa." The rest of the top five grandmother names were Nana, Grammy, Granny and Mimi. For grandfathers, the top five was rounded out by Papa, Granddad, Gramps and Pop-Pop.

Looking to have the grandkids call you something more creative? The website also includes a list of "unique" grandparent names, so perhaps Gramma-Bamma and Stud Pa will be more to your liking.
