We love our grandmas! But not everyone calls their grandmother by the same name, and that is especially true if you live in the south. We have our own special names for our beloved Nana, Honey, Granny, or at my house, Nina.

Southern Living has come up with a list of the most popular southern grandmother names, and we love them! There is nothing quite as endearing as some of these oh so southern names for those special women in our lives. Their list is below, but we would love to hear what you call your grandmother!
