:eyeroll: I have such strong feelings about this. I just don't know why, lol. BECAUSE SHE FREAKING GOES BY SAMI. That's why.

Quoting limited to 3 levels deep
actually like I said he calls Arianna Ari sometimes, & not in a demeaning way. Even when he wanted to hurt Sami, he still called her Samantha. & he calls Rafe Rafeal when he's being a jerk about it.... So that doesn't really make sense, no offense to your answer really. It's like he has this block and cannot call Samantha Sami... And since nearly everybody calls Samantha Sami it's like it's more disrespectful than respectful. Personally, I just dont get it. It's less personal.
Actually, when he first came to town he alternated back and forth calling her Sami and Samantha...and usually referred to her as Sami when he was talking about her to someone else.
I think as his feelings for her grew he started calling her Samantha all the time...and has ever since.
You're right that he uses Johnny and Allie's nicknames - but I've always assumed it was following Sami's lead. Just an assumption on my part.
And can anyone blame him for preferring EJ over Elvis? :lol:
This doesn't speak to the character's motivation so much, but when James was asked in a chat whether the choice for EJ to always call her Samantha was the writers or whether it came from James he responded that he thought Samantha was such a beautiful name, why not use all of it?
So that probably has more to do with it than anything else.
