Unless it was durring sex, then try to let it go. I've called my kids by my dogs name. It happens. When you're tired, or see an action resembling another action you've seen before, your mouth spouts off faster than it should.
I know it hurts your feelings, but I'm sure he didn't mean it.
Like I said, unless it was durring sex, then be pissed.

 I don't think I would be mad if it was an accident, the brain works in unusual ways sometimes.  I would probably give him a hard time about it though.

I would not be angry, I mess my own kids names up all the time when my brain is not firing on all cylinders.  Feel free to tease him relentlessly, though! :)

Well, who says they were good thoughts, even if he was? You can't tell the man what to think.
Wife, child, it doesn't matter. We forget stuff, we brain fart, we speak before we think. Its human.
Btw, I've also called my SO every one of my kids' names, including the girls. I've called him "dad" accidently, and once I called him my ex husbands name. I get dirty looks for it, but he never gets mad.

I wouldn't be upset. Sometimes your brain just freezes and you call people the wrong name.  It happens.

He could have thought of her. It doesn't mean he doesn't love you.  I wrote my maiden name on a check recently, just out of the blue.  I have been married for almost 13 years. The brain is a funny thing, it really can have those moments it needs to reboot.  Don't read too much into it. I also told the UPS man the other day this was not my current address but another address.....he looked at me as you would expect. Then I said forgive me, I have not had enough coffee yet, he laughed.  I haven't lived at the old address in 2 years! I  was thinking one thing and anothr thing came out. Relax, pregnancy hormones can make you read way more into stuff than you need to. It's okay.

This exactly. I'm glad to know I'm not to only one who gets names mixed up! I always feel so stupid.
