Safta or Savta


Gotta love the love from the safta in your life

If you’ve got a rockin grandmother who just doesn’t seem like the bubbe type, maybe the best name for her is Safta. Safta means grandmother in Hebrew, and we think any grandmother who calls herself Safta is kind of…well, badass. She doesn’t wear orthopedic shoes and isn’t the matronly type, but she’s still great at covering those grandkids in kisses.

Though we think this grandmother name is awesome, if you’re looking for more, check out our list.
