Our children had different "names" that they called their grandparents and great-grandparents.
(I have lots of photos of all the grandparents and great grandparents, but with our move, the albums are still in boxes. ...so these following photos I happen to have on our computer).
My hubby's parents were called "Papa" and "Granny". (Since my husband's mom's mom was "Granny" to my husband and his siblings...so my hubby's mom chose to be called" Granny" when her mom passed away.)
***"Granny's" dad was called "Voovoo" (Grandpa in Portuguese is pronounced "Voh-voh", but Dave's family - 4th generation born in Hawaii of Portuguese descent pronounced it like "Voo-voo").
***My parents were called "Grandpa" and "Lola" (Grandma in Tagalog (Philippine language).
My mom's dad was called "Lolo" (Grandpa in Tagalog).
Lolo and me, when I was 2 and 1/2 years old at Clark AFB, Philippines, before my family got assigned to Hanscom Airfield, Massachusetts.
My dad's parents was called "Grandma" and "Grandpa" (My "Grandpa" was able to be at our wedding, but passed away before our children were born).
My Grandma, our oldest and only child at the time, my dad, and me.
My Grandpa and me when I was almost 4 years old.
Although we dearly miss my husband's parents, his grandparents, my mom and my grandparents, we are very blessed to still have my dad and that he was able to be at both our girls' weddings.

bottom row: my dad aka "Grandpa", his sister aka my Auntie A, our younger daughter
Also another from last year at our younger daughter's rehearsal dinner, holding his great-granddaughter.
And he will be able to be at our son's wedding in a few weeks!
I wanted to be called a similar name" as my mom, but also wanted to keep her special "grandma name" to be associated with her, so I thought of "Lolli" :o) We had thought how cute it would be to have the grandchildren call him "Pop"...so we could say... Do you want your "Lolli-Pop"? :o)
Lolli's house, when they all were here for a weekend visit.
He decided on "Papa", which our little Bunny is very good at saying! And we have a little clip our daughter sent of her, after her bath.
(Hm...I should have thought of being called "Papa"! haha) So, we will see if "Lolli" will stick!
What are some Grandparent names in your family?
Here are some "L" artwork.

Thank you for stopping in! I am still behind with Jenny's Alphabe-thursday's "L"!
And here you can read some of the things that L stands for when talking about what Love is... to me.
