How do you say "grandpa" in Italian?

Answer

The Italian word for "grandpa" or "grandfather" is "nonno." This is a singular masculine noun, so the correct plural for "nonno" is "nonni." When discussing a particular grandfather, one says "il nonno," or "the grandfather," while one says "un nonno" to say "a grandfather."

To say "the grandfathers," an individual simply adds the article "i" instead of "il": "i nonni." The Italian word for "grandma" or "grandmother" is "nonna." This is simply the feminine version of "nonno." The plural form is "nonne." To speak of one particular grandmother, one says "la nonna," and to say "a grandmother," one says "una nonna." The plural of "la nonna" is "le nonne."
