Another way to recover, when you forget a name:
I hadn't seen a coworker for a few months, and I forgot his name. (Please be kind, his last name has lots and lots of consonants in it.) The next time I saw him, I asked him for his work phone number. Then I looked that number up in the company directory, and now I've got his name again, without admitting my failure to anyone except: you.
