Something Old, Something New

35 Weird Names For Grandparents According To Reddit

There are many resources available to help new parents pick a baby name — books, websites, the city you were vacationing in when they were conceived (hello, Austin!).

The process of nicknaming new grandparents is a complicated custom that your kid will likely veto once they’re old enough to talk back. But if your still looking for some ideas, a number of Reddit threads yield the best, worst, and weirdest grandparent names to consider for your folks and in-laws … whether they like it or not.
