I remember most people's name from my graduating class, after interacting with people so long I remember their name. My gf is terrible with that, she pretty much doesn't remember anyone from our year outside of her group of friends
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

I'm like that, except another step. I can't even remember street names on most landmarks. I recognize the area, but I'm unable to connect 2 areas in relation to each other. I was supposed to walk down a single road for 20 minutes, I got lost for almost 3 hours. I'm serious, I'm am the worst with directions and names.

I used to not be that great, until I started driving.

Sometimes if I don't interact with someone for a couple of months I forget their name. It usually comes back to me but it's an effort. I just had a dinner with people in the high school college-ready program I was in. I had forgotten most of the names of the people I graduated with who were there. Good thing they had name tags.

If I like someone enough to interact with them after a couple months I know their name

I can remember a person's face about 10 years since I last said person. Name, not so much.

I'm Chinese and the reason behind my name is kind of funny.

My mom wanted to name me Justin, but my grandmother pronounces it like, "Just Done". So she thought it was bad luck.
My grandmother pronounces Howard like, "Ha Wood". Meaning "Shrimp Life".

The only silly name story I have is for my original username here. And the story keeps getting longer.

As for names, I take after my dad with knowing faces but not names. I can recognize anyone I've ever met before. But a name after not seeing them after a while is left to the winds almost always. But if I knew the person by a nickname, I never forget it. Kat, Toad, God, Chode (I feel so sorry for the guy), Angus, Ruben, Fat Jesus... *sighs* I knew some pretty crazy folk.

Okay, I'll regale you of a magnificent tale of irony.

Long ago, in a time lost to the ages (A.K.A. 2004) I got my hands on Kingdom Hearts:CoM. And after finishing it, I fell in love with using the word Twilight in my username. But at the time I wasn't a Snafu member and my original use of the word in a username was "Twilight-Davis", since I like the name Davis. Anywho, one day while playing in a big ol' lan game of Halo at school, I got my first ever no-scope headshot and I was so proud of myself that I called out "You've just been 'pwned by twilight'." And then my username that I would eventually use for Snafu was born. Used the name everywhere. But dark times came with the emergence of the Twilight series and I was soon bombarded by Twilight fans/haters that thought I was involved in their squabbles because of my name. And the irony is that I was in essence pwned by Twilight for being pwned-by-twilight. And this would happen again and again after every new book/movie came out in waves. But then MLP came out and everything was better. THE END!

But yeah, this was all when I was younger. Still like the name for various reasons. It's just silly and nostalgic to me.

Chinese guys have the most archaic names, like vincent, howard, xavier, virgil. Nobody white names kids that these days

For shame though. If I ever had a kid and it was a boy there's not way I'd not be naming him Vincent. It's an awesome name. Xavier and Warwick are great as well.

The names are like that because they pronounce each syllable like it's its own word. My cousin moved from China to the US, and had the wonderful experience with the cultural differences. His name is Fook Yu.
I AM NOT KIDDING!

I was about 10 when I met him, so I couldn't look him in the eye for a month. My Chinese was pretty shit, so we didn't really talk much either way. The comedy regressed when I watched Austin Powers a few years later.

The chinese guys I know were all nicknames for longer names so they're Ken instead of Kenneth or Mike instead of Michael.
