    I had 3 sets of grandparents until I was about 10 and called them all Grandma and Grandpa. (though for some reason I called my maternal grandfather "Bonko" until I was 3).

    Unfortunately, all my grandfathers died within a 2 year period around the time I was 10-11. I have only have one living grandparent for many years now

    I'm in Paulie's camp in that I haven't had grandparents since the early 1980s, but we had a Nana which isn't really inventive, but it is what my daughter calls my mother, and she calls my dad "Gramps".

    There are tons of Buelos and Weetas/Weleetas running around Texas. Hehe!

    I call my grandparents on my dad's side Abuela and Abuelo. My dad's side is Puerto Rican by the way. On my mom's side, I call them Granny and Grandpa. My only dead grandparent is my Grandpa...he died in February. Everyone else is still around.

    my nieces and nephews call my parents, Dzia Dzia (pronounced like Ja Ja) and Busia (pronounced like Boo Sha). That's Polish for Grandfather (dzia dzia) and Grandmother (busia). I called my mom's parents that and my dad's mom I called grandma. My grandfather on my dad's side died when my dad was 2 so we didn't have a grandpa (which sounds weird to me when I say it.).

    I called mine Grandma and Grandpa for the ones who lived next door and my other Grandma we called Grandma X because she always signed her cards that way (meaning grandma with a kiss)

    My kids call my parents Grandma and Grandpa, they call my husband's parents Dzia Dzia and Bushia which as you know from Dar's post is Polish for Grandpa and Grandma.
