The most precious name in the English language is whatever your grandchildren call you……………………
My grandchildren call me ‘Mam’. My daughter ‘M’, who had the first grandchild started this. I had always thought I‘d be a “Marmie.” However, I wouldn‘t change ‘Mam‘ for the world. I don’t know any other ‘Mams‘. When we go into a store, employees will say, “May I help you, ma’am?” Or, “Here’s your change, ma’am.” Or, thank you, ma’am. My grandchildren will ask, “But Mam, how does everyone know your name?” LOL
Most of my eight grandchildren would first say “Mum”… later graduating to ‘Mam.’
I know a Gangy, Granky, Gin-Naw, Mam-Ma, Honey, Mammy, Giggles, Nana, Mimi, Mint, Jo-Jo, Granny, Joy-Joy, Am-Ma, Dah, Mom, Mama-Too, Mama Jean, and Yappy!
