35 Weird Names For Grandparents According To Reddit
Old doesn't count.
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!). But few things will prepare you for when the people who raised you make the earnest request to be called Bobo. 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.
- Papa John
- Voa Voa
- Voo Voo
- Toke? Toke
- Big G
- Elvis (aka The King)
If none of those strike your fancy, try this convenient Grandparent Name Generator. Just resist the temptation to find out your own grandparent name, because it might be “Graddy Laaranee,” and you’ll want to be too old to care before you hear that.
