Your vs. Grandmothers’ vs. Names?

Loving "old" names for little girls, but can’t find just the one. Can you list your grandmothers’ and great-grandmothers’ names, please? Hoping this will help me find what I am looking for. Thanks!

My grandmothers were Clara and Marilyn. My great-grandmothers were always called Granny and I don’t think I ever knew their real names....but if I can find out, I will list them later. Good luck!

My mom’s mom is Lois Catherine, while her grandmother was Grace Catherine (which is why my first name is Catherine).

My dad’s mom is Lorraine Rose, while his grandmother was Amelia Rose (I think that was her middle name-either way, it’s my middle name too).
