Bis comes from the Latin meaning twice. So in some countries you shout it to get what in the UK you would shout encore for. So it is twice a grand child not an encore grand child.

Bis, bi means two or twice; bisnieto means, roughly, twice the grandchild. I don't think bisnieto has the meaning of a bonus. From Definiciona: Este vocablo en su etimología esta compuesto del prefijo latino “bi” dos y del latín popular “nepta”, a su vez del latín “neptis” que quiere decir nieto.
