4. Other Seniority Terms For Family In Nepali

Vocabulary For Family In Nepali

Seniority words refer to the sequence in which people were born. Nepali language culture holds a very different approach to granting seniority in naming the children.

Furthermore, the genders are also divided, with firstborn females and firstborn boys being tallied separately. The remainder is relative; for example, if there are two daughters (both female), they will be referred to as "firstborn" daughter and "last born" daughter rather than "second born" daughter.

 If there are three daughters, the sequence is firstborn, second-born, and third-born.

Finally, the sequence is different if mixed genders, such as two daughters and one boy. It will be like a firstborn girl, last-born daughter, firstborn son (even if the son was born after the last-born daughter).

The forms here are in the neutral/masculine gender.

SecondbornमहिलोMahilo
Third bornसहिमलोSahimLo
Fourth bornचौथोलोKahimLo
Last bornकान्चोKancho
