As Canis said, it's a common auditory hallucination, especially when one in half asleep
It was heard and recorded right on the edge of sleep and once analyzed exhibited very flat vocal banding at 100 Hz which isn't the normal human range. This was my little awakening to the possibility of it being outside RF..

Encyclopedia of Ghosts and Spirits:
Calling Ghosts - Ghosts of the dead or spirits who call out the names of the living to attract their attention and lure them to their death. Calling ghosts are rooted in the superstition that one should never answer the call of a stranger who knows your name and wants you to approach her, for she could be a calling ghost in disguise.
The sirens of Greek mythology are of this type of spirit. The sirens were water nymphs whose beautiful singing lured sailors to their death. They lived on an island between Circe's isle and Scylla. They sat on a flower bed surrounded by the rotting corpses of the men they had killed. In an, they were portrayed as beautiful women or as birds with women's heads and upper bodies. Odysseus defeated the sirens by having his men plug their ears with wax. But because he wanted to hear the song himself, he had himself tied to his ship's mast as it sailed past the sirens.
There is a strong tradition of calling ghosts in Hawaii. According to lore, they are disembodied female voices who call your name at your back and ask you to turn around. If you do so, you make yourself vulnerable to illness or death. They like to catch a person unawares so that the person reacts without thinking.
Was it a recognized voice?
No it wasn't but if I might assume the tone gave me the sense of knowing me...
Did you notice anything unusual about its sound?
Unlike many debatable interpretations, there wasn't any doubt that my first and last name was spoken from a woman loud enough for me to awake to it.
Did you take it as a warning, just as unusual, or didn't give it another thought?
No but as mentioned previously it was an awakening because of it calling out my first and last name audibly.
I've continued exploring auditory phenomena and find myself realizing that what might be explained to be primarily "place memory" instead of intelligent by nature.
