Is there any specific order in the list of names in a meshabarach after an aliyah? For instance, does my wife get listed first,or my parents? Do Grandkids get listed after their parents or only after all my children?

As far as I know there is no official order, you can do it in any order that you prefer.
Just be careful not to mess up the grammatical references. Sometimes the gabbai will say
העולה ואת אשתו פב"פ ואת אביו פב"פ ואת אמו פב"פ ואת בנו פב"פ ואת בנו פב"פ
At a certain point it becomes very unclear who the 'his' is referring to. Is it the father's son? The son's son's son?
The gabbai should either switch to saying ואת בן העולה פב"פ or group the family members into plural groups to avoid an ambiguous 'his' ( eg ואת אשתו פב"פ ואת הוריו פב"פ ופב"פ ואת בניו פב"פ ופב"פ )
