Finnish Name for Grandmother

By

Definition:

The formal Finnish name for grandmother is Isoäiti. Iso means "grand" and äiti means "mother." Less formal words for grandmother include mummo, mummu and mummi.

Some parents object to the mummo/mummu/mummi names because they are too close to mommy or mummy. They prefer names that are more differentiated from a mother's name.

Go to the list of ethnic names for grandmothers or to a comprehensive list of grandmother names.
