If you forget someone's name would you go through the alphabet?

As human being we sometimes have faulty mind, there are lapses in our memory. And we even forget the names of people that we met a long time ago and but haven't seen recently. Not only names but also the things we need to do at the moment we sometimes forget doing. Now just want to ask you--If you forget someone's name would you go through the alphabet until you remember it? And why yes or why not?

I'll wait until i see them again and politely ask them their name again. I think going through the alphabets will just erase everything on your mind about that person

Wow! I have never thought about doing that before. Most times, I would simply try to think back to the first time I met the person and imagine that they are introducing themselves for the first time. Perhaps that would jog the memory of their name.

I am not go as per alphabets. This is because i don't remember anything or i will remember full details. If i go through alphabets also i will not remember if i forgot the name fully.
