Jehovah this, Jehovah that, Olorun this Olorun that, Chineke this, Chineke that...etc was men attempt to name God based on personal experience but scripturally God called Himself in Exodus 3:14 in the Hebrew phrase אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה‎, ’ehyeh ’ăšer ’ehyeh, “I am that I am” a common English translation of this Hebrew phrase or "I am who I am," "I will become what I choose to become, "I am what I am," "I will be what I will be," "I create what(ever) I create," or "I am the Existing One." The traditional English translation within Judaism favors "I will be what I will be" because there is no present tense of the verb "to be" in the Hebrew language.

However, it is worthy of note that Jesus Christ only called God "Father" throughout the gospel except in Matthew 27:46 “About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, [c] lema sabachthani?” (Which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”.

However, we know this expression was connotative being a moment that redefined the fate of Mankind but after this redemption task was completed in John 20:17 Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’” This is to reinstate who and what God is known and should be known or called.

Finally, Galatian 4: 6-7 And because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, you are also an heir through God. The Holy Spirit in us has given the final verdict on how we should address God based on our sonship, therefore we call Him “Abba, Father” a term more intimate like "Daddy".

My aim is not to discourage you of whatever name or names you call God, whether Oniduromi or Advocate, the purpose is to let you know that He became your Oniduro because He is your Father and that is what “Abba, Father” does.

Sure but it wa a response to sycophants in Mark 10:18.

He said "The Father and I are one.” John 10:30.

We know He is God and He is good.

"" I will be what I choose to Be"". For Me, whatever He wants us to call Him is dependent on Him. If He chooses to be a monster, trust Me, He will play a monstrosity role in the lives of people. If He wants us to call Him Abba Father,He will Play that role & wouldn't push it down our throats. He will give us reasons beyond reasonable doubt why we should call Him that. Whatever He wants people to refer to Him, He will prove that to them through what He is ready to do. He is a person of integrity & not an arrogant coward. Respect is earned and not demanded. Any good father knows that. If you Play the role of a Father to a person, he or she doesn't need a prophet or you to tell him/her to call Him father. In a nutshell, "" I Will Be What I Want To Be"" wouldn't happen through force but through the role He will Play in people's lives. If He wants to be called King SHALOM, then everlasting Perfect Peace you will See.
*In conclusion, no single person can tell anyone what they should call Him. You relate to Him according to how He reveals Himself to you. My submission. Thanks.

You did not get it. I have stated enough scriptures to show what God is to every believers "Father".

The Holy Spirit even testifies of that but it is not a crime to call God any suitable nam e based on our experiences of God in our lives.

I concluded that those experiences was as a result of being Our Father.

You said He always called Him Father except one place. And that's not true
