I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but I'd never heard of it.
Apparently, the word 'nuncle' came first.  'Uncle' was a copying error, changing
it from 'a nuncle' to 'an uncle'.

There are a number of words that lost or gained an 'n' at the beginning due to
this kind of error.

So let's hear it for Nunkies!

"Eternal nights too short,
How quickly melt away,
With all the love we shared once,
Forever in a Day."
