Antaidhean is Uncailean

Aunties and uncles

It’s worth remembering that you may also hear people giving much more detail in Gaelic about aunts and uncles compared to English. 

My aunt, m’ antaidh, can be described either as piuthar mo mhàthar (my mother’s sister) or piuthar m’ athar (my father’s sister); and my uncle m’ uncail can be described either as bràthair mo mhàthar (my mother’s brother) or bràthair m’ athar (my father’s brother).
