Reminder that there are very specific names given to uncles and aunts depending on the familial relationship; Mom's brother - मामा (मामी) Mom's sister - मौसी (मौसा) Dad's older brother - ताऊ (ताई) Dad's younger brother - चाचा (चाची) Dad's sister - बुआ (फूफा)

Note that in addition we add an honorific suffix of जी, so e.g. मामाजी!
