How is it possible for friends to follow me on my anonymous instagram?

I made an instagram account using a fake name. Today I saw a new follower who was an old friend, more of an acquaintance of me when I was in college. I posted only one picture related to that college town. She doesn't know me that well. I can't imagine she still knows my name. She used to be a Facebook friend. Is it possible that Instagram suggested my profile to her? I know privacy I myth on insta and stuff, and my profile is public, but come, why does it go and suggest me like that... I just wanna have an instagram account that is public but where no one knows it's me... ugh. (Btw I don't post pics of me, but I do have a profile pic)

    It is possible that Instagram recommended it if they were made with the same email or your real account follows your fake account.

    It could have suggested your name to her because of the email youre using being registered for other accounts. 

    • I don't use that email adress for anything else. I hate the internet
