    Names for grandpa / grandfather

    I saw there was a post for Irish names for grandma, but could not find one for grandpa or grandfather. Sorry if this ends up being a repost. My question is pretty simple, what would be a typical name that a grandpa would go by in Irish? The other question would be if you were picking the name that you wanted your grandchildren to call you by in Irish, what would you pick?

    Seanathair - grandfather literally old father

    Athair mór - grandfather literally big father

    Athair críonna - grandfather literally old father

    Daideo - granda

    Daid críonna - granda literally old dad

    I like Daid críonna (críonna also means wise or shrewd)
