Girlfriend Calls Me her Ex'es Name Accidentally. What's The Psych Deal?

Hi,

SCENARIO:
---------
My girlfriend comes back to the table from a restroom break, and accidentally calls me by her ex'es name. She denies any existence of communication or contact (physical, email, ym, etc..) with her ex and strongly claims that she didnt know how her ex'es name suddenly came out of nowhere. they broke up 1 1/2years ago and has never gotten in contact with each other for the longest time, as she further claimed.

QUESTION:
---------
Is there any psychologically-backed explanation that proves that she's credible in saying that the name just popped out without any influence of a recent encounter/contact with her ex'es? Or should I simply lower my trust level as far as her honesty and loyalty are concerned?

I am looking forward to anyone who can shun light on this issue as this has admittedly been bothering me for quite some time now. Thank you so much in advance for your incites. More power to your website.

Calling by the wrong name
by: Anonymous

I have done that before and have no idea why?
Haven't you ever called someone the wrong name. Like your children or a friend. It happens and doesn't mean anything

maybe he was thinking of him

maybe she was thinking of her ex before she calls u, but it doesnt mean he has any contact or in any way communicating with her ex. have u experience sometimes, when u saw something or did something, someone remind u of it. so maybe thats what happens thats why she unconsciously calls u by her ex name.
