No, the address could have been tried by brute force and the SPAMmer got lucky, or the name can have leaked some other way, ie someone with a packet sniffer watched it in a normal unencrypted mail or HTTP session.
So no, not for sure.

Actually, you've already got your answers. I just want to generalize it for a little: here are billions of ways to have your address compromised. From having some kind of spyware on your or your friend's machines to being intercepted by some filters (from packet sniffers to special-purpose emails processors).
