A list of techniques to help you remember names

I'm interested. Esp. as working methods largely depend on what you are good at mentally.

For example I take notes as fast as possible of some personal details and later add as much context as I can. From that point on I will most likely not need to refer back to my notes as the name sticks to all the bundle of information. No need to form verbal associations (which works but not as well) or making up visual associations (which I have trouble with).

Taking notes is on my list. definitely an easy method to take up.
