Translation

I need to know the correct word in Latin for a daughter addressing her grandfather. I've done searches using Latin + Translation and Grandfather, I know the Latin for Grandfather is Avus but I wanted to check whether it is correct to address someone as Avus or if there is a more colloquial term (or if a child would be more likely to call them by name). They are speaking English in the current day but she was brought up in Rome c. AD 50 (they're immortal) so I wanted her to call him by the name she would have grown up with and also clue in people there who speak Latin of their relationship.
