Maternal grandson i.e. the son of a daughter is known as नाती,
Whereas, the son of a son is known as पोता . Again, the daughter of a daughter is known as नतिनी.
Similarly, the daughter of a son is known as पोती.

But daughter's daughter is usually नातिन (naatin) though नतिनी can also be used.

An easy way to remember नाती and नातिन is that are similar to नाना and नानी (maternal grandfather and grandmother) while पोता and पोती start with 'p' like in 'paternal'.
