Hebrew Name for Grandmother



The Hebrew name for grandmother is savta. Since Hebrew uses a different alphabet from English, making transliteration necessary, words often exist in several different spellings. In the case of savta, variations are savah or sabta. Some Jewish families prefer the Yiddish bubbe.
