  8. Ruudsch Ma' Hinda says:

    When someone new tells me their name, I allways repeat it out loud, then
    say “cool” or something similar and introduce myself with “Hi insert new
    name here I am -insert own name here.” And if there is a small new group of
    people after I actively tried to memorize their names, I go at least once
    around the group repeating their names while pointing at them.
    This has always been deemed “cute”, “adorable” and other positive things,
    but never negative, because I put an effort into memorizing their names and
    that puts me in a very positive light making it easy for them to remember
    my name by what I did and what they felt because of it. And it makes asking
    for their names that much less uncomfortable since I already showed them I
    might have problems remembering their names (somebody who puts that much
    effort into memorizing my name must have problems with memorizing new
    names, so of course it is ok if he asks for my name again or mistakes it
    for another name in a few minutes)
    win – win 🙂

    now let’s see what your tips are…

  12. Ferman Sensei says:

    This is not a huge problem in other cultures with other languages, like
    Japanese, where names have meanings that are related to the Kanjis they are
    spelled with. Usually people explain how their name is written and
    therefore you can understand the meaning of their name, making it easier to
