Is 'Hello, you!' affectionate or used when you have forgotten someones name?

Someone recently said this to me whilst I have been at home from University. They said it in quite an upbeat voice. I hadn't seen them for at least two years prior to this.

Is it a sign that they had forgotten my name, or an indication they were pleased to see me?

Potentially had forgotten your name. Potentially saying it out of affection. Potentially saying it out of surprise of seeing you.

No way of knowing unless you ask them, which seems to be the answer to most of these questions you ask. We can only speculate.

I say this to people I am very happy and surprised to see, and it is in no way an indication I forgot your name.

''hello you'' sounds like something a person from a small village from the 1810s might say to the love of their life that they've known for 2 seconds but will marry and die with at the age of 27.

Call me naive but I would read it as they were pleased to see me

It sounds cute to me, depending on who is saying it.

You've never seen it? It's worse if you make eye contact with him whilst watching (assuming you didn't). But yeah, "hello you" sounds creepy to me for some odd reason.
