S/O Grandmas names, Grandpas names?

I thought that other post was fun.  It was interesting to read all of the older family names.  So what about your grandpas?

We are having a boy so I was looking at older male names but none of them really work for us.  We had/have Vincent (my nephew), Irvin, Francis (DS middle name), and Bruce.

    My grandpas were Robert and William. MH didn't know his grandpas very well and I don't even know what their names are. I know there were also more Roberts, a George or two, and a Frank (Francis) in that generation on my side.

    I agree-hearing all the older generation names is fun!

    George, Warren and Anthony --- I don't know H's paternal grandfather's name, but I assume it's Edward since that's his oldest uncle. 

    We've considered George or Georgia as names.

    Williams and Ronalds on my side. DH's side is James, Allen, & Charles.

    All of which are pretty classic names, though we will not be using any of them unless they are middles.

    Joseph (But no one called him that, he was always 'Lefty Pete...to the point where my mom would tell callers they had the wrong number if they asked for Joseph because she really thought her Dad's name was really Pete!) 

    My paternal Grandfather was Lucien.

    We already names out daughter after my Grandpa, Harry Leigh. He was my everything as a child. We were thinking of the name Harrison for our son to continue to trend, but the only nick name option is in fact Harry- which I sadly don't care for. My other Grandpa was Richard and a refuse to have another *** in the family.

    Grandfathers are: Allain (goes by Cletus), William (goes by Lorne), Keir, and Tommy (Thomas)

    Grandmothers are: Mary, Helen, Joan, and Roberta

    MH and I have been doing a very large family tree, so although we likely won't use any grandparent name we do have some much older family member names on our list (Adalaide, Lillian, Arthur, Isabelle).

    In our family the names are Samuel, Geneva, Anna, Iver, Stephan, Theresa, Anne, Belen, Dorothy, Norman, Lawrence.

    If baby is a girl she will be named Geneva (Eva, Evie) after my grandmother on my father's side.  And her middle name will be Belen after H's grandmother on his mother's side.

    If baby is a boy... I like the name Iver, but we both like the name Dean - Dean is my father's uncle's name.

    My grandparents:

    paternal side: Donald and Louella (my brother named his son Donald after our grandpa)

    maternal side: Edward and Dorothy

    both my maternal grandparents had parents named Edward and Marie (my grandpa is a Jr.)  If we have a girl, we are going to be naming her Marie since I am incredibly close with my maternal grandparents (never knew my paternal since they died long ago).  My grandpa's mom Marie also sounds like she was an incredibly amazing woman and I would be honored to tell them I want to name her after their mothers. 

    If we have a boy, I have no idea what we will name him yet... :)

    My DH's grandparents:  (He has some interesting names in his family tree)

    paternal:  Cletus and Marjorie  (Marjorie's father's name was Zeno)

    maternal: Hollis and Evelyn
