A number of languages distinguish in between maternal and paternal aunts and uncles; English is not one of them, however Arabic is. A head uncle is عَمّ (ʿamm, pl. أعمام aʿmām), and also a paternal aunt is the feminine form, عَمّة (ʿammah pl. عَمّات ʿammāt). Maternal uncle is خال (khāl, pl. أخوال akhwāl), and maternal aunt is خالة (khālah, pl. خالات khālāt).

One point to be afflicted with in psychic is that we’re talking about blood loved ones only; in-laws are an additional entry.
