(m) Fruncle : noun : [fruhng-kuhl]

(f) Fraunt : noun : [frant, frahnt]

Definitions: The friend of one's father or mother.

     As one of our family's great friends prepares to introduce his first child into the world, we struggled to come up with a name to define the relationship between members of our family and this friends daughter-to-be.  My little brother finally decided that he will be this girl's fruncle, a combination of friend and uncle.  And with a fruncle comes fraunt, frandma, and frandpa.  I personally cannot wait to officially become a fruncle.
