Most Dutch parents followed a strict pattern when naming their children: the first son was named after the paternal grandfather, the second son after the maternal grandfather; the first daughter was named after the maternal grandmother and the second daughter after the paternal grandmother.
When you find a source that lists children in their birth order, this could be a big clue about the names of their grandparents. Even Dutch immigrants usually followed this pattern so the names of children born in another country could give a hint about the Dutch grandparents, even though the names may have been translated.
Keep in mind that there are exceptions to every rule though. My grandmother Gesiena Wilhelmina Woordes was not only named after her grandmother (Gesiena Leefferdink) but also after the queen (Wilhelmina), giving her two names like the rest of her siblings.
