    Question One's Second Cousin

    A cousin is the son/daughter of aunt or uncle.
    But what does it mean when someone say "x is my second cousin"?

    Thanks :)

    The child of your [first] cousin is your second cousin.

    Another question,
    ً
    a maternal uncle is "the brother of one’s mother".
    What do you call the brother of one’s father?
