I'm pretty certain my mom would be mortified if I started referring to her as "the woman who is in a mother-daughter relationship with me."
This struck me as a good example of the relevance of the other person's feelings about any label. Labels not only to describe how you personally feel about the connection, but they can also be a term of endearment, or an expression of a shared understanding that you have, or an acknowledgement of how the other person is proud to be labelled.
