Tarpanam Sanskrit words for Pitru s (ancestors)

As per tarpanam, we do it for 3 ancestors on each side, father's side and mother's side.
In my case Mother(maatru)(M) and Father's mother(pitamahi) (FM) are alive. So I need to start from Father's Father mother (FFM) which is told as "pithu: pitamahi" or "prapitamahi". However what do I say for FFFM and FFFFM which are the other two starting from FFM? Is FFFM told as "pithu: prapitamahi"?
This is for pitru varga tarpanam.

For maatru varga tarpanam, what is the word to use for Mother's Father's Father's Father's Father? (MFFFF). This is because my MF is alive and next is MFF which is called maatru-pitamahan and MFFF which is maatru-prapitamaham. So am only missing the word for MFFFF. Will it be maatru-pithu-prapitamahan?

பிது:= தகப்பனார்.; பிது: பித்ரே= தாத்தா ( அப்பாவின் அப்பா) பிது: பிதாமஹான்=அப்பாவின் தாத்தா; பிது; ப்ரபிதாமஹான் அப்பாவின் கொள்ளு தாத்தா.

மாது: தாயார்; மாது; பித்ரே= அம்மாவின் அப்பா; மாது; பிதாமஹான்= அம்மாவின் தாத்தா; மாது: ப்ரபிதாமாஹான்= அம்மாவின் கொள்ளு தாத்தா.

அம்மா இல்லை; அம்மாவின் அப்பா இருக்கிறார் என்றால் அம்மாவின் அப்பா காலமாகும் வரை மாதா மஹ வர்க்கம் தர்ப்பணம் செய்ய வேண்டாம்.
