His younger brother is moon
After leaving the churning of the ocean, Lakshmi ji went to Lord Vishnu. Therefore, all the elements that came after him were given the title of his younger brother and sister. In such a situation, the moon came out of the sea after him, so he became the younger brother of Mother Lakshmi. At the same time, according to Hindu beliefs, we consider Lakshmi ji as our mother, so her younger brother became our maternal uncle. For this reason, the moon or Chanda is called maternal uncle and it came out of the churning of the ocean, hence the ocean is called the father of all of them.

That's why Chanda is also called uncle.
The second reason behind calling Chanda uncle is that the moon revolves around the earth and stays with her like a brother day and night. Now since we consider the earth as 'mother', so his brother, the moon, became our maternal uncle. That is why Chanda is also called Mama.
