Do you call your aunts and uncles by just their names or do you call them "Aunt/Uncle So-and-So"?

Do you make your kids call their aunts and uncles, Aunt/Uncle So-and-so?

I call my aunts and uncles "Aunt So-and-so" and I encourage "Uncle" in front of their names but I don't get on to the girls if they don't. The way that my parents explained It to me was that it was respect. I agree. I encourage.

Fair enough. I do still call my aunts/uncles, Aunt/Uncle so-and-so. I think it is more habit now, though.

Quoting heather4511:

I refer to them as Aunt Kandace, Uncle Scott, etc. But In person I often just say their names. Although sometimes I call them Aunt and Uncle. I have a lot of Aunts and Uncles.

Oh, and I go both ways for my kids. Plus we have a few good friends who we have our kids call Uncle.

 I call them Aunt/Uncle and their name. I taught my children, my example, to do this as well. To do otherwise would be disrespectful, IMHO.
