How to Remember Names

How to Remember Names
The ability to remember the names of people you meet will always serve you well in social situations.

1. Pay attention when you are introduced to someone. A few minutes after you meet the person, say his or her name to yourself again. If you have forgotten it, talk to the person again and ask for the name.

2. Write down the new name three times while picturing the person's face; do this as soon as possible after meeting someone.

3. Ask how to spell a difficult name, or glance at the spelling on the person's business card, if it's offered. If you know the spelling of a word and can picture it in your mind, you'll remember it better.

4. Connect a name to a common word you will remember. For example, the name Salazar could sound like 'salamander,' 'bazaar' or 'sell a jar.'

5. Make a connection to the person's hobby or employment. 'Bill the pill' might help you remember the name of your pharmacist, for example.

Writing down new names is generally a very successful memorizing technique that doesn't require a lot of work.

For a memory boost, check out a book about using mnemonic devices or strategies.

Repetition by Jenny W.
I find repeating the name to the person helps me to remember names. Not only that, but it also assures me that I'm pronouncing the name correctly.

Get Them to Say Their Name
If you can't remember the name of the person you are talking to, find someone you do know (like a co-worker or spouse) and introduce them by saying, "Hey, I want you to meet someone, this is my wife Mary." Then they will say, "oh, my name is Joe, it's nice to meet you Mary." Then you now know is name!
