My family is a bit kooky, so it varies. We all call each other goofy stuff. Never the traditional Mom & Dad. Last time it was Adolf & Eva.

Dad and Mum. Don't know why I pronounce 'mom' that way, but I always have. Probably because my dad pronounces it that way and I learned most stuff like that from him.

I call my dad "Daddy" sometimes even though I'm twenty-three. Recently with the new neck injury and I am feeling severely bad pains, he takes care of me and I can't help calling him that. He's a great father.

Depends on who I am talking to. I don't talk to them much. When I do, I don't usually call them anything, just talk.

Why? Because my father still wants me to call him Daddy, and my mother Mommy. I'm 44. I ain't calling anyone "Daddy"

The Farsi equivalents of 'mother' and 'father.'

Mom and that other dude. Actually, despite the fact that my dad left when I was very young, and has not kept much contact, I still call him dad when I refer to him. Interesting....

Although one of my grandfathers got called "Pop Pop"

Mom, Dad. Occasionally Mama or Mother, never Papa or Father. And I don't call them by their first names.

My grandma talks about her father as Papa when she's telling old stories.

Just Mom and Dad. An oddity though. My parents are divorced and both re-married over 10 years ago. I call my dad's wife Mom when I'm at their house, but I have yet to get comfortable calling Mom's husband Dad.

Mom and Dad when I lived in their home. Now that I'm married and have kids, it's been Grandmaw and Pop since the boys were born.

Usually mom and dad but I tend to call my dad by his first name when I'm around my step-sibblings.

Dad and I call my mother by her first name. She likes every one to call her by her first name, the grandkids, kids, nephews.
