"A bátyám az a magas fiú ott hátul." - Duolingo
In practice: yes. The two most often used ways of talking about siblings is either specifying both gender & relative age (báty, öcs, nővér, húg), or not mentioning either (testvér.) Alternatively, you could use fiútestvér/lánytestvér (boy/girl sibling, ie brother/sister.)

Rarely you might encounter fivér (brother.) Also, nővér can be used as sister without specifying age. These two come up usually when you talk about a group of people, for example, the Wachowskis were known as Wachowski fivérek, then they became Wachowski testvérek, now they're Wachowski nővérek. (They are the people who made The Matrix.)

Ἡλληνιστεύκοντος: Comparison, TLG BC and AD
On the differences in word frequencies in the corpus of the _Thesaurus Linguae Graecae_ between BC and AD authors (roughly, between Ancient and Byzantine).

Much of the difference is due to the influence of theology (lots more "theos" and "logos", for example), but some also due to differences in vocabulary, e.g. earlier aneimi vs. later anerxomai. Fun stuff.
