nonna
Explanation:
nonna = grandmother
There is no other way to say it.
Grandma Anna = Nonna Anna
An endearing form could be Nonnina, the "ina" is the diminuitive suffix.

nonna


Explanation:
I'm agree with Paola LM from Rome; with the meaning of grandmother the only solution is "nonna". With the meaning of nurse, nursemaid could be "tata", but "tata" is never a relative

nonnina/nonnetta


Explanation:
My kids call their nanas "nonnina" or "nonnetta" when they're trying to scrounge something from them!
It's a diminutive and endearing form of "nonna".
