    What are your Grandparents' names?

    I'm going through a phase at the moment where I'm asking everyone what their grandparents were named. Naturally there's lots of standard ones that you would expect (Johns and Marys) but there is also a lot of wonderful surprising ones out there, names I hadn't really considered before.

    So give me your Grandma and Grandpas' names! And any other relatives in that generation that you think have note-worthy names


    My Grandparents:

    Mavis Anne & Mervin John
    Jean Lucy & Richard John Rangi (Known only as Rangi which means 'Clouds' in Maori)

    DHs Grandparents:

    Josephine "Josie" & Gerhardt Philip
    Patricia "Patsy" & Harold

    My grandmother was also one of 4 sisters:

    Iris Winnifred "Minnie" or "Min"
    Doris Hazel
    Mavis Anne
    Joan Mary "Billie"
    ✯Stephanie May✯

    Dad's side:
    Anna Lucille
    Charles ? (Something with an O)

    Mom's side:
    Hilda Carole
    Glennie Wayne

    Great grandparents:
    Merle Wayne (mom's side)
    Margaret (no middle) (mom's side)
    Eva Hilda (mom's side) (great great grandma)
    Ruby Nell (dad's side)

    I would have to ask my parents about a few of the great grandfathers I'm missing. I even have some great great grandparents' names but I would have to ask for those too
