About This Quiz

To all your grandmothers all over the world, we salute you. You guys are just the best. Every grandmother is cool in her own way, and some grandmothers are just incredible. Still, we have to say with all due respect that the most amazing grandmothers tend to come from the South. If you look up a picture of a grandmother in the dictionary, the odds are that the photo next to it is of a Grammy from the south of the Mason-Dixon line. They're good with hugs, kissing boo-boos, cheering on their grandkids at a football game as well as teaching them to make the best biscuits and pies in the land. 

And what would a really awesome Southern grandma be without a really cool name? And if you just happened to be a Southern grandma, what might your name be? Would you be a Honey, a Big Momma, a Lolly, a Maw or a MeeMaw? Or possibly you would be a Queenie, a Sassy, a Sugar, or a Two-Mama?

There's only one way to find out your Southern grandma name, and that's to take this quiz. When you're done, why don't y'all come on in for supper and let MeeMaw fix you a plate of something delicious.
