Back when we were dating, I called my husband by my ex’s name one time when we were, “having fun” and as someone who was on the other side of it, it was literally just a huge brain fart. We had a serious conversation about it but it was so obviously a mistake that had nothing to do with anything, so he let it go. We laughed about it afterwards because he could see how genuinely apologetic I was. I do not think there is any cause for concern.

Definately, let it go.  Not another moments thought.

Dont overthink it!! Maybe something triggered the memory of the name, not necessarily the memory of her 🙂

I think it was probably just a slip of the tongue. My boyfriend has accidentally called me my sisters name before. He didn’t even know he did it, sometimes people just speak incorrectly without thinking.

Laurie and Lindsay are so similar in sound, he has a lot on his mind. It’s probably a brain fart. Sometimes I catch myself almost accidentally calling my Fiance by my ex’s name, but that’s only when my Fiance is being annoying, hahaha.

molokoa:  My mom thinks it’s hilarious that she accidentally calls her pitbull by my name all the time…I guess it kind of is.  😀

I wouldn’t harp on it. I once put down my ex birthday on an application instead of my fiancee and honestly it’s because they are two days apart and I was on autopilot. It happens.

Simple mistake, means absolutely nothing other than that he was stressed and not thinking clearly.

Don’t stress I once called my SO by his best mates name! When saying I love you! AWKWARD! Trust me I was not having it away with his best mate was just thinking of a conversation I had with him earlier. 

He’s probably just stressed, and thinking about what he did before that job which probably included his ex wife.

Ha, I call my mom “babe” or “Hun” and my husband “mom” More frequently than I like to admit. And after we had dog-sat for a weekend, I told my husband he was a good boy. Glad I’m not the only one who has these kinds of brain farts. OP, don’t worry about it!

I just called my dh by my abusive ex’s name the other day.  I was super stressed & angry & it just came out.  It meant nothing.  He didn’t seem to notice.

I wouldn’t get too upset over it, he is stressed and going through a rough patch.  Just a slip of the tongue.  My mother in laws calls me by the first wifes name all the time, but I think she does it on purpose.  My husband has slipped up a few times and I just shoot him a dirty look and say “Really??”.  Then came the day I accidentally called him by my first husbands name.  He said “Oh, Oh, you can’t get mad at me now”.  We laughted about it.   I would let your hubby off easy on this one.

Yeah, I wouldn’t even assume that he was thinking about her at all. Also it might be something about talking on the phone. The other day I was on the phone to my sister and referred to my Fiance using her FI’s name. They both start with the same letter too.

I haven’t been with Fiance nearly as long… but there have been a couple of times where he’s started to say her name (which starts with an M) before Robyn.  

It’s usually pretty funny… and he apologizes but I don’t take it personally. I don’t know how I’d feel in  4 more years if it happened though. Like the others have said – I woudn’t stress!
