Uk dating website for nerds
I came to your site to see if there was a language out there that used the same words but couldn't see anything. They're so proud to be the only Be Ma and Be Pa that they know!!!!!Big Grandma/Big Grandpa: My brother, when he was just learning to talk, called our other great grandparents Big Grandma and Big Grandpa. Hence we called them Big Grandma and Little Grandma.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.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!
Alvin and Butter-butt: My daughters started calling my father Alvin because they thought he had puffy cheeks like Alvin the singing chipmunk.
We always called my grandmother Babchi (bop-chee) or Baba (Bah-bah) and my grandfather was Dadju (Dah-jooh).
I was always told that Baba was Ukrainian and Babchi was Russian. When our first g-child was born, we pondered, as Busia (which signifies "old" to me) and Bunia were taken.
My ingenous 11 year old sister-in-law came up with the names "Amma"- for the Grandmother and "Adda" for the Grandfather.
She derived the names from lord of the rings when one of the Elves were talking.
They call my mother butter-butt because while they were camping, she backed into a trash basket and got a butter wrapper stuck on her butt.
