English to Italian translations [Non-PRO]
English term or phrase: aunt
I need the Italian version of the word aunt. I have a new niece and I need to know what I can have her call me.
Vanessa
Italian translation:zia Vanessa
Explanation:
How does this sound to you? A bit strange when you first hear it. Children then invent their own way of calling you. My nice calls me "gia".

Explanation:
in Italian, especially (not only) if you have more than one aunt, you call your aunt with her name: "zia Maria", "zia Antonia", etc. Good wishes, I'm envious... ;-)))
