  • I think everyone does it at one time or another. My grandma called me everyone of my cousins names before she gets to mine. And she has done that for as long as I can remember! I did have a situation where the mom of a little boy I was babysitting was calling me Jessica and my name is Rebecca.............not very similar. So next time I had to call her for something and her voice mail picked up I said "Hello, this is REBECCA the babysitter, I just wanted to........." She picked right up on that and has never called me the wrong name again. It was kinda funny!

  • Yes. My son is 14 years old and I still call him by my brothers name, they have the same middle name and when I get pist I say my brothers full name instead of my sons. WTF?

  • I am friends with a gay couple and for years my friend Frank was with Andrew but then he ended up with a guy named like him, Frank! Now when we kick back in the pool I call his husband Andrew by mistake at least 2 times out of the 10 times I call him. So embarrssing! My other friend Frank just gives me this look like... GASP! Oh no you didn't girl!

  • My mom used to call me by my brother's name (because she was always yelling at him for picking on me and on the occasion where I'd pick on him and he'd tattle-tale she'd automatically call me his name since he was normally the suspect) but now she sometimes calls me by her DH's name or she'll call me "honey" which is her DH's nickname on accident. She calls my son, Adrian, Aidan because I have a cousin named Aidan and she gets them mixed up. It's quite annoying...
