Default The names of Jesus's Grandparents

In the Roman Catholic Church, the names of the Virgin Mary's mother and father are Anne and Joachim. How were these names decided upon?

Very funny. and so on and so on till the beginning since Her lineage in Luke goes back to the beginning. Which moves me to think about the beginning of John. In the Beginning,......ect. All things came to be through HIm, and without Him nothing came to be.

In this line of thinking,.......God, The Father, would be my final answer also.
