Do you spell Nana or Nanna?
Like Sheldon has explained, Meemaw is a wonderful, warm, loving, sweet and wise grandmother who is protective and caring of Sheldon. She calls him “Moon-pie” because he’s so “nummy-nummy, she could just eat him up!.”
That said, The Big Bang Theory should’ve at least made an effort to explain Meemaw’s absence instead of totally ignoring it. Holland revealed that while they did film a short scene where she explained why she couldn’t attend the ceremony, they ended up cutting it, once again due to time constraints.25
In Britain, Ireland, United States, Australia, New Zealand and, particularly prevalent in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Nan, Nana, Nanna, Nanny, Gran and Granny and other variations are often used for grandmother in both writing and speech.
What is the difference between Grandma and Nanna?
According to Dictionary.com (American Dictionary), Nana is one’s grandmother, and Nanna is “The wife of Balder” (Scandinavian Mythology) or “The Sumerian god of the moon: the counterpart of the Akkadian god Sin”.
