Okay, so my little cousin Nicolynn recently started calling my brother "John-John." No one EVER called him that, except our grandmother. And Nicolynn has NEVER heard her call John that.

But my aunt says she goes into her room(which was grandma's room) when Nicolynn has nightmares.

Does my grandmother's spririt, like, lurk in the house still?

Maybe she just thought it could be a cute nickname? I've had some kids call me Gra-Gra or some shorter variation of my name. :D

But I'm not necessarily a believer in the supernatural, either, so ...

But how did she come up with it? She's always called him John Edward and she is only little and she isn't the sharpest pencil in the box...

Well, let's face it; John-John isn't the most amazing nickname in the world. It doesn't take much to repeat someones name. She might have heard it on a TV show or something, too.

And what do you mean 'she goes into her room when Nicolynn has nightmares'? As in your grandmother goes into her room? How would you know? I think you're definitely jumping the gun on this one. I'm not saying there's absolutely no chance that your grandmother's spirit lingers in your house, but just because your cousin has nightmares and started calling your brother a rather juvenile name doesn't necessarily qualify as proof of a supernatural being.

Now if your little cousin starting wiggin' out and projectile vomiting all over the place while her head spun complete 360's, then it might be a different story. ;)

If I had the same eye color as my dead, great-grandfather, does that mean that his spirit lurks in my house? No because it's silly.

Congratulations, you now know the answer to your question.

Could just be a coinicidence, I mean John John is a pretty typical nickname for a small child to give a person named John.

there you have it, john-john, it doesn't take much effort to come up with a nickname like THAT
and She's a little kid,
She probably just thought it was a brilliant nickname, "I can call him John-John, its short for John!!"

Creepy story. Things like this really make you wonder what is and isn't real and possible.

The same way your Gran came up with it.

We have very creative minds. John-John isn't hard to think off.

My condolences for your gran.

Gra-Gra?? What the heck is your name, Granola??

I'm pretty sure it's just a coincidence. :) How old is she? I remember having a lot of nightmares when I was younger too.

Now, if it was a nickname that didn't relate to John's name whatsoever (ex; "Bob" xD), then that might be a different story. o_O;

Well, I over heard my mom and my aunt saying this.

I just thought it was actually true since the younger ones on either side of my family has seen a dead grandparent.

Like my cousin Jenifer said she saw a man in her room. She said he had grey hair and blue eyes. So we showed her the picture of my grandpa Eddie and she said "That's him"

It maybe a sign......don't disable my rep as I say this but I believe in ghosts and stuff. Does he have nightmare's about her?

No. It's just when Nicolynn has nightmares, she goes and sleeps in her mothers room which was my grandmothers room.

Also, when my brother was little, after my grandma died, he would be screaming in the middle of the night. And my mom went to go see what was wrong and my brother said "Nothing, I'm arguing with grandma."

And I'm sitting in my grandma Emilia's room(she's dead too, I never met her). And I swore I saw her standing at the foot of the bed, but I wasn't afraid.

If you've never met her, how can you swear you saw her at the foot of your bed?

Maybe She's just trying to say that she's just there. How did you know it was her anyway? Photo's?

Grace, actually. o_______o

Maybe you should let her sleep in a different room for the night and see how that works out? I'm skeptical about ghosts and whatnot, but it's worth a go.

For it to be known I actually believe this. I can hear my grandmothers heels in the hallway all the time and she died three years ago.

..I fail to see what is strange about this. A lot of little kids call people by their real name but say it twice. My neice calls me Zachy-zach. So does my nephew. It's not uncommon.

It's like a little girl calling her dad Da-da instead of Daddy or Dad.

Well It is Ghost - Supernatural related! As the ghost at the foot of the bed,nightmares etc

This maybe Paranormal Activity where she has contact with your granny? Otherwise, just some kinda conflict or somethin.

Oh. Sorry about that. I was in a really bad mood that day...

There's a school of thought that says young people (and old people) see ghosts and other 'supernatural' things because they are closer to the 'other side' (being recently born or near the end of their lives). Of course you have to believe in supernatural things in the first place (I don't).

Children imagine things. Everyone does (think of a time when you watched a scary movie and later that night thought you saw something out of the corner of your eye). Most of us realize that it's our imaginations and don't make a big deal of it.
