A rose by any other name…

Grand magazine coverShakespeare had a good point. What is in a name? “A rose by any other name” does smell– and sound– “just as sweet” when that name is being spoken by your beloved grandchild.

If you’re a grandparent, how did you get your grandparent name? Did you decide upon your name yourself or did your grandchild? A recent article in Grand Magazine revealed that it is often the case that grandparents are not known by the names they initially preferred, but rather by the names their grandchildren chose.

In the article, click on a letter and read the often amusing way the grandparent’s name came to be. You may even want to submit your own grand name story!
