Calling someone out creates an adversarial situation–you become the aggressor and someone becomes the victim and no one wins. You do, however, have every right to ask for what you want in a clear, direct way. When the situation arises again perhaps you can simply say, “I prefer to be called Name.” This way there is no charge to the interaction as you have simply stated how you prefer to be addressed. If he doesn’t respond then another conversation can take place.
