Grandparents are the paternal or maternal parents of a person’s father or mother. There are a maximum of four genetic grandparents, eight genetic great-grandparents, sixteen genetic great-great-grandparents, thirty-two genetic great-great-grandparents, and so on for every sexually reproducing live organism that is not a genetic chimera. Around 30,000 years ago, throughout the history of modern mankind, the number of modern people who survived to be grandparents grew. It is unknown what caused this increase in longevity, but it is thought to be a result of improved medical technology and living standards. It is also thought that having three generations alive at the same time preserved information that would otherwise have been lost; an example of this important information could have been where to find water during droughts.

When parents are unable or unable to provide proper care for their children (for example, due to financial constraints, marital issues, sickness, or death), grandparents frequently step in as primary carers. Even when this is not the case, grandparents frequently have a direct and visible role in the rearing, caring, and nurturing of children, especially in traditional societies. Grandparents have a 25% genetic overlap with their grandkids and are second-degree relatives.

The parent’s step-grandparent, the step-parent, parent’s or the step-step-parent parent’s might all be step-grandparents (though technically this might be called a step-step-grandparent). Gramps, granny, grandfather, granddad, grandmother, nan, maw-maw, and paw-paw are all phrases for grandparents that are often used to refer to any elderly person (and others which families make up themselves)


Grandfather and grandmother are commonly used as nouns (e.g., “a grandparent walked by”), however various forms such as grandma/grandpa, granny/granddaddy, or even nan/pop are occasionally used. All versions are prevalent when preceded by “my…” (e.g., “… my grandpa walked by”) (anywhere from “… my grandfather …” to “… my Gramps …”). Gramps (plural Gramps) is an uncommon form that can be used in plural.

Grandfather and Grandmother are the most prevalent forms of address in writing, yet they are quite uncommon as a form of address. In the United StatesCanada, and Australia, Grandpa and Grandma are often used in conversation. Nan, Nana, Nanna, Nanny, Gran, Granny, and other varieties are frequently used for grandmother in both writing and speech in the United Kingdom, Ireland, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, and, notably in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Nana and Nani are the names given to maternal grandmothers in Bangladesh and many areas of India. Dada and Dadi are the names given to paternal grandparents. The maternal grandparents of one’s parents are known as Par-nani and Par-nana. Parents’ paternal grandparents are referred to as Par-dadi and Par-dada.

For grandpa, there are Gramp, Gramps, Grampa, Grandpap, Granda, Grampy, Granddad, Granddaddy, Grandpappy, Pop(s), Pap, Papa, Pappy, and Pawpaw; for grandmother, there are Grandmom, Grandmama, Grama, Granny, Gran, Nanny, Nan(a), Mammaw, Meemaw, and Grammy. Gogo may be used for both, and so forth.
