Daddy

Even though in one's mind, one is saying "Mr. Stranger"

Uncle, daddy or something other than the first name.

Children don't call adults by their first name. We even tend to call older cousins aunty this, uncle that.

Personally, i tend to call some people by their first name.

I hear some people call their stepdads Uncle (insert name) lol. I called my stepdad 'sir' because he wanted me to call him Dad and I wasn't having that, as I was in contact with my real dad. But since your kids are not Nigerian I would assume that them calling your husband by his first name is ok. My uncle's stepson who is AA always calls him by his first name and he has no problem with it. But I guess it would also depend on your husband. Maybe he might get offended by that because it is generally not done in Nigerian culture.
