For my son, both the grandmas are alive and kicking. He calls my mom ‘Didun’ (a sweetened form of the actual Dida) and my MIL ‘Tthamma’

My ex-husband has a nanny,actually it was my ex-husband fathers nanny and we call her "nana"..it wasn't her real name though but that's what they call her.sort of shortcut to nanny.ANd luckily despite her old age,she is still alive and I don't know if she will still be able to be alive when my eldest daughter will have a family of her own so many years from now.

Both my kids grandma's are still alive. They stick to the traditional Grandma because that's what I always used. Of course to define the difference I like to use the last names, although my mom insisted on using her first name when referring to herself as a grandma. My husband's mom doesn't care, grandma is fine with her. Also, they only have my husbands dad left as they grandfather. but its sad because they live in a different state and we're separated by a large ocean its hard to see them.

Yes, both sets of Grandparents are still alive :) My son calls my mother-in-law 'Nana' and he calls my mom 'Grandma'.
