    Well, there might not be a special name for this relation. बड़े can be added to काका or ताया, whatever you might be using.

    Elder maternal aunt’s will be called मासी–maasi.

    While calling elder paternal aunt’s child, it could be either “भाई–Bhai (brother)” or “बहन-Behan (sister)”. But in written they would be called “फुफेरा भाई–Fufera Bhai” or “फुफेरा बहन–Fuferi Behan”. Thanks!

    My son is married to an Indian of Hindu religion from the south of India. They recently had a baby whom I got to see on Skype. When I asked the mother’s mother what the baby is going to call her she said something like oo-moo-maa or similar. The Indian symbols for the names do not help me since I don’t read or speak Hindi. It definitely was not the word daa-dee-maa. Can you help me?
