I haven't a clue how these came about except that my brothers and my cousins named them. One of my brothers's thought it was actually Popeye until my grandfather's death, when he questioned about the spelling of P-a-p-a on a card!We all laughed because he called my grandfather this for years and nobody ever caught it.With Baby Boomers becoming grandparents, the stodgy old codger and plump, cookie-baking white frizzy haired grandparents are getting a massive facelift.Tired of the old standbys of Granny, Grandma, Grandpa etc.My mom, not wanting to be as "old" as her "Bedste mor" had our kids call her "Bedste Jo" (her name: Jo-Ann).Somehow, that made her sound even "cooler" as a grandma.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.
My Babcia was 100% Polish and this is the name for Grandma.I think my mother in law has the most unique grandma name... She wasn't ready to be a "grandma" when her daughter started having kids 6 years ago and she still likes to tie one on.So her two grandsons refer to her as "Beerma" and so will my child! Bella: my aunt at 50 doesn't feel like a grandma, so her grandson calls her "bella", meaning beautiful in italian.She loved saying it and Great Grandmas loved hearing it!We used the older, more formal Danish "Bedste mor" for my late mom.
