Soon-to-be Grandma!

Next month, our grandson is going to be here! We’re so excited!

My daughter and son-in-law told us the happy (and surprising) news in July 2019.


So, what’s the first thing a new Grandma has to do? Pick her Grandma name, of course!

I was born in Alaska, and I’m half Inupiat. The Inupiaq name for Grandma is Aaka. So I’ve decided that Aaka will be my Grandma name – at least until the baby starts calling me something else, lol.

I was raised by my paternal grandparents. I called my grandma Grama. It was easy and informal. I called my grandpa Gogi. Not sure how I came up with that, but his name was Gordon, maybe I heard my Grama say that, lol.

Are you a grandparent? What’s your Grandma (or Grandpa) name? Did you have a special name for your grandparents? Tell me in the comments below:

  1. The joke in our house is that I am grandma to my eldest’s newly adopted furball, Pickles. She calls me Grandma in cat language 😂

    Congrats to your family.
