An example of this is the latest denomination of modern aunts: PANK. The term "PANK" was spread by Melanie Notkin, a marketer, and it stands for Professional Aunt With No Kids. These aunts have the characteristics of being professionals with sufficient purchasing power to provide them with independence and stability.
