Question about English (US)

I have a question from a winnie the pooh.

What do "you(1) " and "you(2)" point to? Piglet, Chistopher, grandfather?

Next to Piglet house was a piece of broken board which had:"TREASSERS W" on it. When Chirstopher Robin asked the Piglet what it meant, he said it was his grandfather's name, and had been in the family for a long time. Christopher Robin said YOU(1) couldn't be called Trespassers W, and Piglet said yes, YOU(2) could, because his grandfather was, and it was short for Trespassers Will, which was short of Trespassers William. And his grandfather had had two names in case he lost one-Trespassers after an uncle, and William after Trespassers.
"I'v got two names," said Christopher Robin carelessly.
"Well, there you are, that prove it," said
