Gran gran grandmother, born in 1900, I called her "Baba" .
I think some clarification should be made though.
Mamaie (grandma) and Tătăică (grandpa) = Romanians

Bácsi = Hungarian (he was my grandfather but I called him "uncle")

My Irish grandma, like I said, I didn't meet her


BABA = My grandmother's grandma, Romanian. She was THE BOSS for all of us until she died in 2001 at 101 years old, with me as her favourite granddaughter.

Jeez, I call my sister Gramma, because there are so many other people around calling her that. everybody knows who I'm referring to. My grandparents have been dead for more than 65 years.

I only had the pleasure of knowing my maternal grandmother and I called her Gramma. I always referred to my paternal grandmother as Granny Bean. My grandfathers were referred to as Grampa and Grampa Bean.
My kids call my mother Gram, my dad, Grampaw Bean and my step-mom Granny Bean. They refer to their paternal and step-paternal grandparents as Maw Maw and Paw Paw followed by the first name because they had so many. Their step-great grandparents were Meme and PapPap.
