What are your grandfathers names?

(349 Posts)

Sorry if this has been done to death but I'm due to give birth to DS2 in 6 weeks and I still haven't fallen in love with a name. DS is Henry so I thought I might find inspiration from this.

Mine are:

John (DS' middle name) and
Arthur (I like this and think it goes but DH isn't keen)

Denis and Charlie.

Great Uncles that I know - Len, Iain, Alfie, Hugh.

DH's grandfathers were David and I think Daniel was the other.
