Personally, I don't think there's anything at all wrong with Grandma and Granpa, but oddly enough, I never had any by that name, neither did DH, and neither does DD. Well, actually, DD has one Grandpa, but she struggles with saying it, so it comes out all sorts of ways. Here's what we have:
Nonna and Poppa
LuLu and Grandpa (Grandpa's name still evolving)
I had a Granny and a Grandmother (total opposites, I know!) and a Papa and a PawPaw. Those latter two always got mixed up in my mind, and I'd have to stop and think.
The only thing I'm opposed to is having the same names on both sides of the family. When DD tries to say "Grandpa" it sounds like "Poppa" so they keep wanting to make it that, but I'm putting my foot down. She already has one Poppa.
