I can't access that link.  The thing with crochet stitch patterns tho, is  that pattern names are mostly useless, often one stitch pattern name can describe several completely different stitches, or the same stitch can be called by many different names.

There dozens if not hundreds of variations of blanket motifs that include elements of classic granny squares with something else (like a flower in the middle for example), which don't have standard names.  

If you can post a photo, or link another way, we might recognize it or be able to find something similar.  You can put a pdf, jpg, jpeg, gif, or png pattern into a post.

I'm sure I've seen gobs of squares similar to the second one, but with the center more like flower petals instead of...Greek columns?  Interesting.  The first one is just a square, but no granny elements.

I'll take a look and report back...

Kind of a hybrid of your 2 examples, not a typical granny 'block' of 3 US DC, (it's 2 DC) but has a circular, sort of flower like center.  Is in UK terms, UK treble is US DC.  https://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/aria-blanket.html

Not horribly close, but starts with a circle and ends with a square https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/square-g-1

Actually, here is the database I was looking through; if you are not a member the search criteria might not 'stick', but at the top 'search for:' box I put granny square, and on the choices at the left side I clicked 'free' and crochet'.  This database more of a reference, it does host some free (and paid) patterns designed by members but it also lists links where you might have to hunt down a book for example. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/search#craft=crochet&availability=free&language=u|en&query=granny square&sort=best&view=captioned_thumbs

The 1st square is just a solid granny, many of them are called motifs. The 2nd one looks like it has cluster stitches (Greek column looking things) then a regular granny square around. Look for books/patterns with squares/motifs in the title.
