My mom started that but then had beef with most of her friends we called Aunt. I remember seeing us seeing one of her ex-friends at the store once and I went up to her, gave her a hug and said hey Aunt Peach. My mom snatched my hand and said to call her Ms. Peach, she ain't no aunt of yours right in front of this lady. Then she said BYE BITCH and walked away.
 
So we did the aunt thing until I was like 8 -__-

I do feel weird when my nieces/nephews GF/BF call me aunt Purple. Especially when they break up and they are still calling me that when they see me. lol.  And I won't say anything about the ones that have 2 at the same time calling me that.

eta: I'm sure my nephew/nieces don't tell their SO to do it, but they just start calling me that. They also call the nephew's parents Mom/Dad, even after the breakups . Strange folks LOL

I knew this girl since I was 13, we fell out 2 years ago. I used to call her kids my niece/nephews and take them everywhere... she introduced me as her sister NYE... and reached for me, I dodged Aretha style

Either aunty/uncle or Ms.

In my culture if you call an older person you know by their name it indicates that you come from a bad household, and when you address a stranger you call them aunty or uncle. If you don't do this it indicates a bad upbringing.

I call my mom's bestie Ms. __________
Other besties are aunty __________

Even my God mother (who happens to be my father's first cousin) we call aunty _________.

Many of our older cousins we address them as cousin ______. Cousin Raul, Cousin Ben etc.
even my mom addresses her older cousins this way, and her mother's friends.

lol PP... I don't do phony

I know my mom and "aunt" had to have gotten into it since they were friends before I was even a thought but "that girl I knew since I was 13" played herself

That aunt is also my God mother
