Should we rename the trope? "Evil Uncle" feels a little bit generic. However, I believe "Wicked Uncle Ernie" could be an interesting trope name, and give The Who their sixth named trope.

Should evil aunts be considered an example or a gender-flip?

Added to that, would cases where an aunt is used as an abusive guardian, and her husband is portrayed sympathetically, be an inversion? For example, Jane Eyre

Hello guys. I was just thinking that somebody should add a "playing with" to this page. The Evil Chancellor has one, so why not the Evil Uncle? Whaddaya think?
