    Right this is complicated and my family is pretty weird. I dont know a lot of my family members as we all just lead different lives. But it goes like this:

    My dad had a wife who he divorced before he met my mum. However he had 2 kids with his first wife, a boy and a girl (i think). Well he then married my mum and they had me and my sister.
    But i have this question which wont make sense.

    My dad had a daughter with his first wife. That daughter is an auntie to a youngish girl (about 16). Who is this girl in relation to me?

    That's not what he meant, if you had a daughter of your own, she would be the (half) niece of your half sister.

    In any case, it depends on how your half-sister and her niece are related
    - if the girl is the child of your half-sister's brother (i.e. your half-brother), then the girl is your half-niece
    - if the girl is your half-sister's niece by marriage (i.e. the niece of her husband) then I don't really think she has any defined relationship with you; the husband would be your brother-in-law

    If your half sister has a niece by a half sibling that isn't related to you then you are not related to her niece.

    not necessarily. If the niece is the daughter of her half brother that she mentioned it would be the OP's half niece, if the niece is the daughter of a half sibling of the half sister of the OP's then there is no relation.
