My mother wouldn't even allow us to call our aunts and uncles by just their first names. It had to be Aunt Hattie or Uncle Phillip. I was eight years old when my first nephew was born. We sort of grew up together so of course he just called me Pam. The other sixteen nieces and nephews followed suit.
