As a young (not really, but I feel young) grandmother I would not want to be called Grandma if I didn't want to be.

My mother is called Mima by my kids and the daycare kiddos, and if one had to call her Grandma I think smoke would blow out her ears, but also that she wouldn't respond as that's not her name. She is also Mima to her great grandchildren, not Great Grandma.

When I was growing up we called my grandmothers Grandma Schlichting and Grandma Stecher, each and every time we were speaking to them (and yes, my kids called them Great Grandma Schlichting and Great Grandma Stecher). Personally, I'm glad our family moved past that.

I'd tell BIL to adapt.
