Gandalf and Mithrandir Can't Post

This is the quote from the book;
Many are my names in many countries. Mithrandir among the Elves, Tharkûn to the Dwarves; Olórin I was in my youth in the West that is forgotten, in the South Incánus, in the North Gandalf; to the East I go not.

I haven't read books for some years now, so I am not very sure how it is there, but I have noticed that in movies Gandalf is always reffered as Gandalf while only Galadriel and in Minas Tirith he is called Mithrandir. Why is that so? All Elves, including Elrond, Legolas and Celeborn should called him Mithrandir while none of them except Galadriel do that. It is also a little strange to me that Saruman and Radagast called him Gandalf and not Mithrandir or even Olórin for example.
