    Just first names for most of our friends, and those where it is culturally appropriate to use aunty we use that for both my friend and myself to her kids (close friend only). DD has never been confused to as why my friend is Aunty when she is not a 'real' aunt, I think I explained it to her a couple of years ago just in case though.

    @Jontu I got confused too. My parents' have big enough families as it is, add in cousins, and great aunts and uncles etc, I was very muddled. Then parents' friends .

    We are TTC, but I notice my nieces and nephews spend a lot of time clarifying who is who, but unfortunately their parents don't seem to have clued into their confusion yet.

    Close friends are Uncle or Aunty. Other friends are just their first name. Some of our friends refer to us as Uncle and Aunty and some don't.

    Eta- funnily enough our kids only refer to their actual aunties and uncles by their first names. Mainly because our siblings were still little kids when our kids were born and it didn't feel appropriate to call them uncle and aunty.

    Everyone 'older' in my family were called aunt/uncle. I spent so much time trying to figure out who was who!

    Close friends Aunty and uncle - DS doesn't get confused between his real aunts and uncles , other people first name but I usually ask first, we run into a lot of my clients when we are out and about so I always introduce them to him as mr or mrs unless they say otherwise

    Always first names.
    I don't even use aunt and uncle for relatives.

    First name only.
    We grew up calling family friends auntie/uncle, but haven't done the same with our kids.
