nephew + cousin


This word was inspired by the birth of my most beautiful little baby cousin, who is fathered by one of my most favourite cousins. We grew up together. He is a part of my personality.  He and his brother are two of the most important people in the world to me. He is basically a brother to me; therefore, his son is my nephew. Full stop… except most people know I’m an only child, so I have to make it clear that my mother hasn’t miraculously given birth to a child who has even more miraculously given birth to/fathered another child.  HENCE: Nephousin.



  • Did I really just write that paragraph above?
  • Are familial labels relevant at all anymore?
