Greetings Barbarians! Long days and pleasant nights!
A person’s name will always be special, it is the second gift given by a parent to their child. While yes, a person may share a name with another person but his name will always be his. There may be a person named Mark in the sea of Marks but for him, there is only one Mark.
One of the worst mistakes you can do in life is to forget a person’s name. A few years ago, I came across a friend whom I haven’t seen for a while. I knew the face, but I can’t seem to remember the name. She was very friendly but I felt embarrassed that I had to ask for her name again and made her feel alienated. Until now, that situation haunted me. It was insensitive of me and I knew I could do better than that.

A person’s name is the sweetest and most important sound in any language. Not only that it is a thoughtful gesture to remember a name but of good manners as well. Good manners never hurt anyone yet, good manners, along with common sense, are hard to come by these days.
My friends, by calling someone by their name, you are making a connection with them. If you’re a boss and you call your employees by their name, it makes them feel special. It makes them feel that they are not just an employee to you and they mean more to you. In turn, makes them happy and welcomes your leadership.
The same thing goes in romantic relationships; we use names to call our partners. We call them by their names along with some terms of endearment, to connect with them. We use names to establish an intimate connection. Names have something magical to them. Try to imagine how it would feel if your significant other mentions another name during sex. I would doubt it would make you feel special.
There are great people out there who built their whole career out of remembering names. A dear friend of mine once told me that it is not about what you know but rather whom you know. You cannot know someone without first knowing their name.
Remember that people are proud of their names. I mean, who wouldn’t be proud of having a street or a hospital named after you? I’m still surprised that some people haven’t grasped the importance of names. We should be aware of its power and use it to our advantage.
One of the sure ways of gaining goodwill and making people feel important is to remember one’s name. Most people are too “busy” to take the time and energy necessary to remember a person’s name. Don’t be like most people, much I like everything I talk about here, be great and be awesome. Good manners never hurt anyone and remembering names is a crucial life skill, so it is a win-win situation.
To Courage and Freedom, and People’s Names!
