I remember reading as a kid 50 years ago Jerry Lucas' book on memorization. In the first chapter he talked about memorizing a list of 20 different items, and while I can't remember them all, there was an envelope, an airplane, a basketball, a song and a bucket.

I used to be terrible at remembering names but since I have to do it at work, I've become much better. A trick I use is when I meet someone I try to associate them with someone else who has the same first name.
