Maternal Grandparents: Jerry and Dawn
Paternal Grandparents: Johnny (went by his middle name, Vance) and Ann

FI’s

Maternal Grandparents: Norman (Norm) and Connie
Paternal Grandparents: Donald and Joyce

My paternal grandfather and I were extremely close so when we have our first son his middle name will be Vance, but I don’t think any other names will be passed down.
