Who was hacked?

My dad got a spam email with my (unusual) full name listed as the sender, but from a random email address with no association to my name. Was his contact list compromised or was mine?

The email address it was sent from has no relation to any of mine and doesn't use any part of my name. Just in case, I checked my sent mail and nothing was sent from my account.
His email account was hacked a few months ago and used to send spam to his contacts, but he has since changed his password and has had no other problems.
