LindsayW:  My ex used to do that because our names started with the same letter, too. I have a friend who’s married to a Tim and her ex is Jim. Yikes!

LindsayW:  I accidentally call my dog by my ex’s name all of the time.  Trust me, they are nothing alike.  It doesn’t mean anything.

LindsayW:  It’s just a mistake. Your names are similar and he’s going through some rough stuff. Go pick up a nice bottle of wine and have a simple date night in…..try to forget about all the stress for a little bit!

Let it go. I can’t even call my dogs by the right name. We’ve all had it happen. How many times has a parent/grandparent/aunt/uncle called you by a siblings name. Slips happen. Perhaps he associates her name with stress and disorder, and the slip happened in a moment of that.

My mom calls me the wrong name sometimes and she named me! He’s stressed out, please don’t be so hard on him.

My ex Fiance and current Fiance share the same name so I don’t have to worry much about this type of situation (phew)

I have been guilty of calling my mom babe or honey though – oops!

LindsayW:  You know, it’s an honest mistake (especially since your names start with the same letter). I’ve been married to my husband for several years now, and there are MANY occasions where I accidentally start to call him by my ex-husband’s name. It has no bearing on how I feel about my husband or my ex, it’s an honest mistake. Don’t over think it. 🙂

RayKay:  Yes! My mom will call me by brothers’ names before calling me the correct name, I am the youngest though. lol
