And as I suggested before, you should investigate which lines are causing
complaints to diagnose why grompp is failing.

An atom name is an arbitrary label. An atom type is a designator that supplies
various nonbonded parameters (listed in the [atomtypes] directive of
ffnonbonded.itp. The files you posted before seem to define your bonded
parameters based on the names present in the coordinate file. This is an
incorrect approach. Refer to existing force fields and the manual for examples.
