“Aunty Anu” is the correct form Auntie knows everything if she doesn’t know she makes stuff up really fast shirt of address between these two choices. I myself would have simply said “Aunt Anu”, but that’s because I do not call any of my mother’s sisters ‘Aunty’. There’s nothing wrong with calling her ‘Aunty’ if that is how you address her, but at least in American English, it sounds juvenile, like something a small child would say. There was once a time when young white children were taught it was proper to call older people of color ‘Aunty First-name’ or ‘Uncle First-name’, but this is now considered to be condescending and blatantly racist if you have no relation to them. That tradition is where the names for “Uncle Remus” (see Disney’s ‘Song of the South’), “Uncle Ben” (quick rice seller) or “Aunt Jemima” (pancake and syrup saleslady) came from.

In children’s case, outside of Auntie knows everything if she doesn’t know she makes stuff up really fast shirt the relative’s circle, it’s respectful to call strangers auntie when they first meet the elders. Only if the elders say like, oh please I’m old enough to be your granny or something along that line, then is it okay to call them Ah Ma/Por Por. Otherwise, your kid may get blackface from the elder (for assuming that they are THAT old). It’s a bit more tricky for young adults because calling people Auntie is like saying, you’re much older/more senior and those in their 30s-40s may not like it. Alternatives would be miss, or just skip it altogether – hi, excuse me, etc. The bottom line is to always use a term that assumes they are younger if you’re trying to be polite.
