Errrrr - ahem @Cheeniya! English speakers borrowed bonhomie from the French, where the word was created from bonhomme, which means "good-natured man" and is itself a composite of two other French words: bon, meaning "good," and homme, meaning "man." (Merriam-Webster) Gasp! Repair to the Drones, @Balajee, and forthwith! No noisy auntie calling auntie like mastodons bellowing across primeval swamps there! PS: S asserts humor privileges. The Drones is a fictional gentlemen's club in the Wodehouse universe; the reference to the aunts is a quote. And I do know that the word 'bonhomie' applies to women as well, what with their being human 'n all.
