We joked the whole time that my mother would be called Be-Bop, from the children's Barney tapes.

When my son arrived, we had no other name, so Be-Bop stuck. Bea and Oma: When my first child was born, we had grandparents and great-grandparents enjoying her.

Babci & Dziadzio: Hubby and I are each 100% Polish, and when we had our first, his Mom was already called Busia ( again an Americanized version of Babcia), and my Mom became Bunia, a shortening of the derivative Babunia. So I became Babci (it is even on my license plates! It is a lot easier to have Babci and Dziadzio on one side, and Grandma and Grandpa on the other ( our SIL is from good, Iowa stock).

I really happen to like the names, i beats calling them Grandma or Grandpa ( insert last name).

At Mrs Mary: When my brother was 1 or so he was in day care where he had a Mrs Mary, our father's sister was also Mary and soon became At Mrs Mary (He couldn't say Aunt).

Hubby's sister in Indianapolis adopted Bunia for herself with her g-children, and so it continues... I grew up with a Babcia, a Baba, a Bamboo, and a Grandpa.

My Babcia was 100% Polish and this is the name for Grandma.

A precious grandchild and being called "beautiful" every day...more could you want?

Be Ma/Be Pa: My 2 year old has called my parents - Be Ma and Be Pa since the first time she could speak and even though she can speak properly now refuses to call them anything else!

I came to your site to see if there was a language out there that used the same words but couldn't see anything. They're so proud to be the only Be Ma and Be Pa that they know!!!!!

Big Grandma/Big Grandpa: My brother, when he was just learning to talk, called our other great grandparents Big Grandma and Big Grandpa. Hence we called them Big Grandma and Little Grandma.

They call my mother butter-butt because while they were camping, she backed into a trash basket and got a butter wrapper stuck on her butt.
