It seems that most basic family terms seem to have Slavic origin (e.g. tata and bunica are like tato and babusya in Ukrainian)

Is the Bun part as in good similar to Norwegian/Danish "Bestefar og bestemor"? When I eventually become a Grandad I think I'd like to be a Besty. Nice names, lets face it Granny sounds awful, who would want to be a Granny.

Grandad is an accepted spelling in collins and oxford dictionaries, but DL is having none of it! Really DL?
