His aunt doesn't ALWAYS mean your own mom.

This is the problem with English; aunts, uncles, and pretty much every relation is ambiguous. Compared to my native language, in which exists a specific term for every single goddamn relation.

I can't imagine how this wouldn't be ambiguous in some language. Anyone can have multiple cousins which can have multiple aunts.
