Have you ever heard of the term grauntie or gruncle?
I recently heard these terms in place of "great aunt" and "great uncle." Are you familiar with the terms? Do you think the words have staying power?
Never heard them, sorry I have! Sad sounding, but perhaps a loving something or other could make them work in a family setting.
That's cute and funny. I've never heard the expressions "grauntie" or "gruncle", but I think they could work.
Your words resembles uncle and aunt, but there is a little difference between gruncle and uncle.
Gruncle can be considered to be combination of
1)Great + Uncle i.e awesome or cool uncle (Graunt is the opposite)
2)Grand + Uncle i.e your granduncle; to make it more clear - When your niece or nephew becomes a parent, you become a great uncle, a gruncle ( Consider the opposite for graunt).
