Maternal grandparents: Johann "Hans" and Veronika "Vroni". Her parents were named Emil and Marie, I don't know about my granddad's.
Paternal grandparents: Georg and Mathilde. His parents were Georg and Maria, hers Simon and ... I'm not sure, but I think she was yet another Maria - after all, we're talking about small villages in a very Catholic part of Germany.Twenty-something SF & fantasy writer, name and language nerd in constant search of new names to bestow on defenseless characters. :-)
My list of all-time faves, continuously updated with new comments and thoughts.

I love genealogy and recently started documenting my family. Some of the names that were used were pretty awesome...though some a definitely cringe-worthy and I can see why they fell out of use!
Miriam Ruth (goes by Ruth)
Clarence Alton (goes by Alton)
Bonnie Louis (went by B.L. I have no clue why his parents chose Bonnie for his name...)
Alma Mae (went by Alma)
I also know Alma's parents' names (so my great grandparents):
Ruth's parents' names (my great-grandparents):
Maddie (not short for anything)
