Your father's brother is your uncle.
Your mother's brother is your uncle.
Your fathers sister is your aunt.
Your mother's sister is your aunt.

English does not have specific names for older or younger uncles and aunts, nor for the father's side / mother's side.
So if Bob is the name of my father's older brother, and John is my father's younger brother, I call them Uncle Bob and Uncle John.
There are specific names for father's and mother's sides. If your uncle or aunt is from your father's side, you can say 'paternal uncle' or 'paternal aunt' respectively and if in mother's side, 'maternal uncle' and 'maternal aunt' respectively.

Most of us don't. If, for some reason, we need to be more specific, then we say "my father's brother' rather than 'my paternal uncle'.

That's a sweeping over-generalisation.

The question is 'What should/do/can we call? ...'
