HA!
My MIL who will be turning 77 this year has insisted that her grandchildren call her HONEY!! Mine call her Grandma.

I like to call her a name that the Mods would not like.

My grandmother never gave me a choice of names.

I do suspect if I'd ever called her "Honey" the I'd have the choice of a "whupping" or "spanking."

My 2 1/2 year old grandson calls my husband "Dude". My sons and my husband are all die-hard surfers, so it fits.

"Honey" is Senator Lamar Alexander's wife's given name. She is deserving of the name, too.

We had a grandma at our church, who was in her eighties.

When her first grandchild was born, ages ago, she wanted to be called grandma.

Well, the toddler couldn't say grandma. He called her Honeymama... and soon EVERYONE called her that, friends and family.

A sweet name, IF the recipient agrees.
