Jack never uses Bitty’s first name, for the rest of their lives. After a while he switches from Bittle to Bitty, as that’s the name he always used in his head, but then he starts to wonder if he should use Eric instead. He asks Bitty, after they get together, if he would prefer that Jack called him Eric, and Bitty says no. It would sound weird, he says. None of his Samwell friends call him Eric, and he doesn’t associate that name with Jack. He hardly associates that name with himself, even, as no one really calls him that except his professors and people who don’t know him. Jack is relieved because he really prefers Bitty to Eric.
He still uses Eric when he introduces Bitty to people, and in more official situations, but he sticks to the nickname for the most part. (When he isn’t using pet names, of course, which he actually loves doing but he only really does in private. Babe, love, and various French endearments that just come out when they’re in the kitchen together or early in the morning.)
I really love how when casting Mr. World in American Gods they were asked what kind of person they wanted for the role and they were just like “Maybe like a Crispin Glover type person.” To which the casting director presumably went “Okay so like… We’ve got Crispin Glover.”
