These remind me at Swedish _mormor_, _morfar_, _farmor_, _farfar_.

Thanks for sharing this with us!  Regarding my own conlang Old Albic,
I don't have yet worked out the kinship system in detail.
All I have for now are these terms:

atto `father'
amme `mother'
hena `child'
miro `son'
rile `daughter'

and the Swedish-style compounds

attatto `paternal grandfather'
attamme `paternal grandmother'
ammatto `maternal grandfather'
ammamme `maternal grandmother'

Greetings,

Jörg.
