We use aunt and uncle for people older than us as a symbol of respect too. Old people we can name grandfa(ther) or grandma(ther). These words are used by children in most cases.The most respectful way for us is using the name and the father’s name of a person. Enough people don’t like when somebody is using their surnames in talking, so we can avoid such cases.
We don’t use the word cousin, instead of it we use something like “second-order( related through grandparent) brother” or “second-order (related through grandparent) sister.
