What are your grandparents' names?

My Grandparents -
[name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Graham[/name] Stark
[name]Frank[/name] (no middle name)
[name]Vera[/name] [name]Anne[/name]
[name]Robert[/name] [name]George[/name] [name]Alexander[/name]

Looking back in my family tree there are many many women named [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Graham[/name] Stark and men with the middle names [name]Graham[/name] Stark. We didn’t know there was such a rich family history of the name [name]Elizabeth[/name] when we chose the name for our daughter! We simply named her after my Grandma, who was the most amazing woman I have ever known. [name]Just[/name] yesterday we found the name [name]Lawrence[/name] in my family tree and I think it’s my new favourite boys name!
There are also a number of people named [name]Jean[/name], [name]John[/name], [name]George[/name] or [name]William[/name] :slight_smile:

I love all of my family names, especially [name]Marie[/name]-[name]Isabelle[/name] and [name]Valentina[/name]. [name]Every[/name] child in our family takes a name from an ancestor or a modernised form of the name, e.g My brother is planning on giving his son the middle name [name]Theo[/name] for my great grandfather. I think is a really nice tradition to have; it gives a child’s name history and helps to keep the memory of those who have passed alive :slight_smile:

My grandfather’s name is Lynnwood. I would love to include his name but…sorry grandpa not sure how. Great grandfather is [name]Salvatore[/name] but goes by [name]Sam[/name]. This has possibilities.

I won’t include my grandparents’ names since the four of them are still living, but here are my great-grandparents’ names with the names of their parents listed beside them. I’m copying this format from an earlier poster.

Charlie Gordon – William Mace (Mace) and Carrie Lavena
Daniel Donhue (Dan) – Jeffie Layfette and Inerree Perthema
Earl Junior (June) – Earl Robert Lee and Della
Eddie Pearl (originally Etta Pearl) – William Madison and Cora Lee
Helen Virginia – Charlie Chester and Exa Ann
Homer Jackson – James Hamilton (Jim) and Queen Victoria (Jane)
Mildred Katherine – George Wiley (Wiley) and Grace
Mittie Frances – Stephen Franklin and Mary Catherine (Stumpy – I have no idea)

Several of the names up there are on my list in addition to some of the surnames.

My grandparents were [name]August[/name] [name]Adolph[/name] and [name]Laura[/name] [name]May[/name] § and [name]Casper[/name] [name]Frederick[/name] and [name]Mary[/name] [name]Anna[/name] (m). [name]German[/name], French/Scottish, [name]German[/name], [name]German[/name] ancestries. I don’t know great-grandparents names. I didn’t use any of these on my children and they weren’t used on my grandchildren either.
