Nope, I still say aunty and uncle, even to family friends who were 'aunty' or 'uncle.' I think its still respectful. I think they like it too .

I come from a culture where older people in our lives are referred to as Aunty or Uncle as a term of endearment rather than a title describing their generic relationship.

I call my aunts and uncles by their first name. Not sure when I stopped using their titles, I think it was around mid teens. I am pretty sure they stared referring to themselves by their names as we got older so we just followed their trend. I still love them to pieces though and have close relationships with them, I refer to them as aunty or uncle to my kids though.

Not really, but my aunt and uncle are only 13 and 15 years older than me, so more like siblins really
