    My best friend is Aunty xyz. And I am Aunty xyz to her kids. She's been my best friend for 15years and like a sister to me

    All other close friends we just use their first name.

    Only our siblings and their long-term partners are referred to as Aunty or Uncle as to me it's a really important title.

    Some of my friends refer to me as Aunty to their kids, and refer to themselves as Aunty to my daughter and I don't correct them but I don't like it when they call themselves my daughters Aunty. They haven't seemed to notice, or maybe don't care, that I don't call them Aunty.

    Growing up we called my parents friends Aunty and Uncle. Once we got old enough we got to decide whether to keep it up or not.

    Umm. My best friend is Aunty. Just like I am Aunty to hers. But others it is dependent.

    Aunty/Uncle for the really close ones- there are maybe 5 of them.
    But we don't force it... actually I don't ever recall telling the kids to call them Aunty/Uncle XYZ, they just have.
