I have an aunt that has a name similar to mine. With my family I am carole or carole anne. She is carol or carolyn. For a long time I was refered to as cousin carole, or carole-with-an-e. Then my cousin Lisa had her first 3 and the kids started calling me simply "cousin", they thought that was the first part of my name and it took them years to realize that "cousin" was a title rather than a name...they are now College and High School Aged and still call me either Cuz or Cousin. I love it -- Form them. I worked with the oldest at a summer camp one year and the boss started calling me "Hey,Cuz this and Cuz, that" I hated it from him. I finally told him "Tim calls me "Cuz" because I am, in fact, his cousin. You are not my cousin-please do not presume a familial relationship." He grudgingly backed off. It can be done with bosses, too.
