oma (German)

bubbe (Yiddish)

babushka (Russian)

abuelita (Spanish)

obaasan (Japanese) [pronounced with a quick long o-bahah
{silent h}-sahn]

sobo (Japanese) [pronounced so-bo {quick long o on both syllables}]

I can find out more if you'd like (the Japanese pronunciations are kinda difficult to transcribe into romanji since inflection also plays a role in what the word means.)
