  • (pl. noun) - When two brothers marry two sisters, the children are known as double cousins. Such relationships are very common in the Ozarks, and are considered somehow significant. In referring to each other these people seldom say simply, "He's my cousin," but rather, "We're double cousins." The word cousin may indicate very distant relationship, but own cousin always means first cousin. --Vance Randolph's and George Wilson's Down in the Holler, 1953
