There are three languages common to Scotland. The most common is English. There is 'Scots' or 'Lallans', and Gaelic - which is still spoken in parts of the Highlands and some Islands. When you asked your question, were you referring to Gaelic, or Scots?

AnSiarach gave you the gaelic words for grandpa and grandma. I don't know what the Lallans word for grandma would be - perhaps it is the same as the English.

I don't think it would be silly to have your grandchild call you Seanmhair - it is very much a matter of personal preference.
