    Well, not a blood relation, obviously.

    As for the name, I've no idea.

    you could have just said your uncle's nephew.

    and no you're not related or at least there is no name for such a relation. At best perhaps you could call yourselves in-laws, but that term is usually only used for mother, father, brother, and sister in-laws and not for cousins-in-laws(if this term is even legitimate).

    aunt's and uncles are not referred to as in-laws even if it is only through marriage

    Your uncle's nephew is the closest thing I can come up with. It's not contradictory if you use it to mean your uncle's nephew on the other side of the family.

    Do like me! I just call them some old relative. I call people like these relatives only if they have done something to be proud of.

    You're not blood related. You are related to the sister of your mother (your aunt). He is related to his father's brother (the husband) (his uncle).

    What it does mean though is that any children of your aunt and his uncle will be blood related to both of you. On average sharing 1/8th of their genes with you (and also on average 1/8th with your friend). If this happened then these children will be your first cousins and also your friend's first cousins, but you and your friend are not related.
