    I've stolen this idea from the grandad thread because it had some really good unusual names. So please tell me your grandma and great grandma names x

    my grandma is Josephine, my lo is named after her, my other grandmother was Gladys, and my great grandmothers were Amelia and Mildred (not sure about the others as my dad did not know his grandmother and my other grandfather who I didn't know was bought up by his aunts)

    My grandmothers were/are Pamela Mary and Diana Valerie. Their mothers were Nellie and Sofy (like Sophie really, but she was Swiss-Austrian). One of my grandfather's mothers was called Kathleen Fanny (eek), but I don't know about the other, as that grandpa died before I was born and my grandma remarried.

    My grandmother's name on my mother's side was Shirley, and her mother was Yetta (LOL).

    On my father's side, my grandmother's name was Hannah. No idea what her mother's name was.
