How about GigiGab? My mother's name is Genevieve and of course when you're learning to speak as a child that's a toughie. so she never got past the G in it as a tyke. So she has stuck with Gigi her whole life. Shoot....I think I was like 13 or so before i realized that Gigi was a nickname... and probably closer to 19 or 20 before I could SPELL Genevieve so I don't blame her....

When Jayden got older, he started calling me Angie and I scolded him! I made him still call me Gigi. Now he's 13 and I've never heard him call me Angie since!

I know of a lady that is also called GG for great grandma!
