If a child has the same name as his father, can you correctly call him "the second" if you dont like "junior"?If your stepparent had also been previously married and had had children by that first marriage, those children now become your stepbrothers/ sisters.The siblings of your grandparents were originally termed grandaunts/uncles and the siblings of your great-grand parents were great-grandaunts/uncles.But over the years those terms have gradually been replaced by the less de-scriptive great-aunt/uncle for grandaunt/uncle and great-great-aunt/uncle for great-grandaunt/uncle.GRANDNIECE/NEPHEW: The children of your siblings are your nieces and nephews.
Note that the term sister- or brother-in-law is used both for your spouses sibling and for your siblings spouse.
But let us take a look at some of the lesser used terms. STEP-: If your parents are parted (death, divorce, ammulment) and one of your parents renames, his/her new spouse then becomes your stepmother/father.
Of course, many of the terms used to express family relationships are well-known and used dully: father, grandmother, uncle, sister and so on.
Because they have completely different parents than you, your stepbrothers/sisters are not related to you "by blood" but are related by "extended family ties".
HALF-: If your remarried parent and your stepparent have children, those children are your half brothers/sisters.
