Grandniece and great-niece are interchangeable terms that describe the daughter of a person's niece or nephew. Grandniece aligns more traditionally with the term grandson, but "great" in the expression great-niece means one generation removed, according to the website Grammarphobia.

Vitor that doesn't make sense in terms of lineage. a father becomes a grandfather then a great grandfather as generations are born. it should by rights apply the same with aunt's and uncles in the same fashion. Cousins work as 1st gen then 2nd, 3rd, and so on. You might want to ask someone who studies lineage for the correct definition

* is fully logical that it would be a Great Grandniece... One is not a Grandmother until their Grand Child . One is not a Great Grand child until one has a The Grand Child as a Child... It follows that would a natural way to understand the lineage.Adriene Hawkes


Adriene- GREAT grandniece? No. She's either my grand niece or my great niece - you've managed to completely skip a generation and I simply cannot follow the logic, try as I might. I'm only trying to find out what I call the daughter of my nephew. It is either "grand niece" or "great niece" and you've somehow gone straight to "great grandniece" followed by an insistence that this is this only natural, logical conclusion. She's either great or grand to me, I still haven't found a suitable answer as to which is correct. She is only a GREAT grand niece if she has a great-great aunt. Unfortunately, she only has regular and great aunts who are living. So she is either my grand niece or my great niece. Also, huh??? re: "One is not a Great Grand child until one has a The Grand Child as a Child... " are you related to Donald Trump because I swear this reads like one of his tweets and/or "speeches"


Hi Lauren, Maybe this will help you. Both are interchangeable, and it really is up to you, which one you want to use. Hope this clears it up, for you. “The daughter of one's niece or nephew is traditionally referred to as either a grand niece or great niece. Both are widely considered correct, as the child is one additional step removed from the individual in question. Similarly, the aunt of one's parent is commonly considered to be a great aunt, while the uncle of a person's parent is referred to as a great uncle.”
