Re: "separated by a common language"

Okay, here's a question that's come to mind:

What do people in the UK usually call their grandmothers & grandfathers?

Y'know, apart from "grandmother" and "grandfather", which sounds so very formal to me. Is it "Gran" like Neville says? or "Nana"? or "Grandmum"? or...? Does anyone use "Grandma" & "Grandpa" or "Gramma" & "Grampa"?

My family (from Iowa & Wisconsin) tends to use "Gran(d)ma" & "Grampa" or "Gran(d)pa". [I dunno, you don't always hear the Ds in it when we say it in my family...]

And what about for great-grandparents?
