1. Four tips to help you remember names better:

Repeat
When you first meet someone, immediately say their name out loud. “Nice to meet you, Paul!”

Reinforce
Form a connection between the name and the person, such as “tall Paul.” Do not say this out loud.

Record
Rely on an external memory source. Tell your good-with-names BFF or make a note in your phone.

And If That Fails. . .
Even if you can’t remember someone’s name, you can usually recall something about them, which will let them know you didn’t forget them altogether. Say something like, “I’m so bad with names, but I know we met at Brian’s party.” Or reintroduce yourself and hope they return the favor. Hate to break it to you, but chances are they can’t remember your name either.

3. “And it came to pass that I, Nephi, said unto my father: I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them.” 1 Nephi 3:7
