I keep my paypal mail name separate from my normal mail so it isn't unusual, ask for confirmation via phone or pm.

It's an E-bay seller Dave, got the address from his shop, may contact him through E-bay to confirm.

If it is ebay I would only pay via ebay for security, other wise you might lose buyer protection, the name might still be different though.
