In Urdu language, we have specific words to call elder brothers and sisters.
For elder brother, we use "Bhai/Bhai Jan" (may or may not add his name)
For elder sister, we use "Baji/Aapi" (may or many not her name)
However, we call younger brothers and sisters by their names.
In the Netherlands, we call our siblings by their names.
But when we are describing our family to other people we use the words:
Zus = Older sister
Zusje = Younger sister
Broer = Older brother
Broertje = Younger brother
Zahid,lily and Nicky : Thanks guys
In Vietnam, for older brothers: anh+ their name
