Who's? :lol:
Do you mean first or surname? I don't remember many names either, what do you need them for? If you remember, what s/he did, you can easily find his/her name ;)

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

Then, I guess, you have to remember the names as names of people around you ;)

mnemonics is the usual solution, but you'd have to think of one for it to be useful to you!
