Great or Grand

I have always had difficulty remembering the proper terms for describing my relationship to this young man -- and to his cousins.

He is the son of my niece.

This means that I am his great-aunt.

However, does that make him my great-nephew or my grand-nephew?

This is what I always have trouble remembering.

And the worst part of the problem is that each time I learn what is correct, I seem to promptly forget it!

I would try to blame it on old age, but I was this way even when I was young!!

At any rate, this is one of my latest drawings. It is entitled "Cole".
