    My children had that same problem. Both my husband and I have sisters named Carol. And both Carol's married men named Don. So there were two Aunty Carol's and Uncle Don's in our family.

    I've just remembered another 'uncle' - someone who was an uncle to everyone who listened to the wireless - 'Uncle Mac'.

    I have two Uncles with the same name on the same side of the family, but different spelling... so an Uncle Geoff and an Uncle Jeff... Otherwise I have plenty of duplicate names for Aunties and Uncles, but all within different contexts.

    My maternal grandmother had two sisters who never married but always shared a house. The were known collectively as "The Aunts". One always wore blue and the other green. I do so wish I had written down all the family stories they told!

    I had 3 great aunts named Edith. To my sister & me they were Auntie Edie, Aunt Edith & Auntie Edgar - the only way we could distinguish the latter was to call her by husband's name!

    My granddaughter at 5 still calls my son “aunty Graham “ . My daughter in law is Aunty Ruth so two aunties. One day she’ll get it right but it’s quite funny at the moment
