    Yes i still call them Aunty and Uncle. One of my Aunties asked me to call her by her first name, but it just feels wrong so i don't.
    Just on a weird side note, when i bump into old school teachers, i still call them Mr ...... or Mrs ......, it would just be odd to call them by their first names.

    hi, I have only one aunt and one uncle still alive, and have always and will always use 'aunt' 'uncle' when I speak with them or speak of them. It is just something we have always done. Now I have my children being called 'aunt' and "uncle' by my grandkids. I love it. I would never change from this, I think it is a sign of respect, but also just to recognise family position. marie.

    Stil Aunty and Uncle to me! Even the non related family friends that were Aunty and Uncle when I was kid. I like it and their names sound weird without the Aunty and Uncle tag.

    I don't have very many. Well, actually I do, but I have nothing to do with them. I sometimes talk to my dads sister, and a photo of her popped up on my news feed that she was tagged in. I commented on it saying 'Looking good Aunty (name)' but I mostly did that because it was her friends photo and I thought if I added Aunty then it wouldn't look like some strange person randomly commenting, you know?



    And maybe a little bit of wanting to actually feel like I DO have family I nearly cried when I saw her daughter listed me as a cousin!!

    I stopped when I was in my teens. I felt it made them sound old when they weren't. That was more weird for me!
    My sister is older and still uses aunty and uncle though.

    Have never used to words aunty or uncle when greeting/talking to or about them. First names only for us.

    Lol... My aunt (married to my uncle) still calls my grandfather 'Mr *****' after 20 years marriage and 10 years being together before that.

    I will always use their titles, as my nieces and nephew do for me.

    Actually my grandma got so upset over her wedding invitation because we used Mr ans Mrs and not grandad and grandma.
