Aunt
aunt. The Hebrew word (dôdâ H1860, fem. of dôd H1856, “beloved,” “uncle”), derived from terms of endearment used by young children, is used once of a father’s sister (Exod. 6:20) and twice of the wife of a father’s brother (Lev. 18:14; 20:20). The last two passages deal with prohibitions against incest.
