When we are introduced to someone, remembering their name is often difficult. This is because you must successfully store their name in your memory and then successfully recall it later. One previously discussed strategy for storing is to repeat their name when you are being introduced.

Studies have shown that if you are given someone's name at the beginning of a conversation, you are less likely to remember it than if you get their name after a few minutes of chatting. This is because if you already know something about the person, their name is more meaningful to you. Additionally, you have more ways to cross-reference the information in your memory. If you are the introducer, you can take advantage of this by repeating the names of the people you are introducing after they have been talking for a few minutes.

If you are trying to recall someone's name, try remembering as much information about him or her that you can. Think of their profession, where they live, where you met them, what their face looks like, etc. All of this extra information will help cue your memory.
