How can I tell my Step-Dad I don't want to call him Dad anymore?

Home More advice Parents & Family

Okay so my bio father passed away when I was two years old, and my mother re-married when I was about 5. I am 14 now and have never felt truly comfortable calling him "Dad" and feel almost..disloyal. I don't really see him as a father figure, rather "my mum's husband", but have always chosen to cover this up for fear of hurting people's feelings (not just his, my mum's, too) but I really want to tell them both that I would rather call him by his first name, like before they married. Considering I have never dared mention this before, how should I go about talking about it? (Sorry this is so long..) Any help is really appreciated. :)
