But there was no way a hacker/spammer could have gotten my name to put in the email. I didn't give the email any information, so is my account still deactivated?
There are many forms of spam and one of their capabilities is obtaining and manipulating any information or called hacking. Any unknown action or suspicious messages that you are not expecting from unknown senders should be ignored. As long as you did not follow or give out any further information from illegitimate sites that you were directed, it is considered safe. Install Web of Trust Addon to notify you of sites you are visiting. If you have other concerns regarding any probable infections or form, please visit the Malware Experts and Specialists of BC for further diagnosis and advice.

I entirely understand how spammers harvest email addresses. But what I DON'T understand is how the spammer harvested my email address AND knew my real name (that was inserted in the facebook email).
The message sent to you is a false information that is why spam is unsolicited or unwanted emails. More info. here http://netforbeginners.about.com/od/scamsandidentitytheft/f/spamemailaddresses.htm
