1. What is gma short for?


Gma is a common way to abbreviate "grandma." Most often, people often use gma when discussing their own or someone else's grandmother, in chat and text messages.

For example, your brother might text you "Hey, u coming 2 gma's 2day?," to ask if you're planning to stop by your grandmother's place.
