Giovanni Colombo de Moconesi (Genoa) is the name I've seen most often cited as Christopher Columbus(Colombo) grandfather.

ETA- I also noticed there is a serious timeline error in the first place. Ramon Lull wasn't even born until 1235 (13th century) and died in 1315. Christopher Colombus was born around 1450 (actual date and year is in dispute), his father was born in 1418 so the grandfather would have to been almost 150+ yrs old to speak with Lull and then relay the story to his grandson.
