So tad is father and taid grandfather? Is there any difference between taid and tad-cu?

  1. Yes

  2. No, just a matter of dialects or simply individual family preference. You will come across both being used quite widely.

Similarly, nain, mam-gu.

taid seems to be more common in the north, tad-cu in the south; similarly with nain versus mam-gu for "grandmother".

And yes, tad/taid is "father/grandfather".
