When Grandpa just won't do, try Saba on for size.

There’s all sorts of names for grandparents. Sometimes it can take a while to find the perfect one…almost like the search for the right name for your baby.

If you’re trying to find the right name for the grandfather in your life, look no further. Saba is the word for grandfather in Hebrew. We think it strikes just the right balance: it’s unique, but doesn’t sound too strange. Or at least it’s no stranger than Gee-Paw (yes, we do know someone who calls their grandfather Gee-Paw).

If Saba doesn’t do it for you, try our list of grandparent names.
