As promised, the Eddard/Ned explanation from a smart listener “r d”:

My understanding of the Ned/Eddard connection is the following:

We know in English when to use “a” vs. “an”: A book. An apple.

I believe that at one point, “my” and “mine” had a similar usage: My father. My mother. Mine uncle. Mine aunt. Mine host. (Lots of references in Shakespeare and Chaucer.)

Somehow, “mine” was replaced by “my”, with some words retaining the “n” sound or dropping it, depending on whether you misunderstood where the phrase was divided, tv show online broadcast 

So, “nuncle” was also said. And we know that Asha Greyjoy and Jaime used “nuncle” in the series to refer to their favorite uncles.

For terms of endearment, Mine Edward and Mine Ann became “Ned” and “Nan”, respectively.
