Having too much time on my hands at the moment I have been flicking through some old pictures of myself while still at school. We are talking about several years ago to say the least. I am amazed at how many people I can still name, even the friends that I have not seen or heard from in years and years. Can you do the same, give it a try, it really brings back some good memories. Have fun.....

Yes,I can remember everyone's name. School days are the most precious moments of my life. I enjoyed every moments of that days, so the pictures of my school is always came in front of me. I can't forget my teachers, friends, game, etc. Even when I see the photograph of my school's friend, I am very excited and recall everyone's name frequently.

I forgot about asking if people could remember their teachers names. I can only really remember a few of them, after all they were the enemy when you was young, lessons and homework, YUK. LOL I bet alot of people can remember the nicknames they gave to some of there teachers, even after all this time... It was all harmless fun. Fond memories though.

Family photographs are alot harder for me to remember names on. It maybe because I didnt spend hours a day with relatives trying to think up new ways to get out of doing homework.. Thanks for replying and have only happy memories..

UR discussion took me back 45 yhesrs when we as a child had so many good class mates- yes even today I remember all their names and who were monitors of the class too.Even I had once a chance to become a monitor while I was in the 7 th class. A couple of years I went to an ice-cream st and was just buying ice cream to my child. Suddenly a person came in a good dress and has ordered an ice cream too.It is a gods gift that I can remember everything what ever I came across in my life-then we were kids but now grownup so there will be a personality change- but my assumption came out genuine. I called him by name and he was totally perplexed and was wondering who called...???I had a little talk with him and made him to recollect all the mischief we did in our class time- he was wonder stuck and just embraced me with love.

I am not really good in names... But with facebook, my classmates in elementary and high school are posting our class pictures. They even tried to put the names of all the classmates... I guess I can only name some of them, as in very few. It is really nice to go back to those all memories by looking on those old pictures... I am glad they have kept those pictures, I don't have copy of those anymore... I lost it, misplaced or maybe the termites have eaten them all...

I certainly could not remember evryones name, that is for sure. It's always nice to have memories of school, much as we hated it at the time. You really need to get that termite problem sorted. You dont want them chewing a cable when you are in the middle of playing a game on Facebook Maybe the termites came from Farmville.. LOL Have a funtastic day..

Oh, man! At my age and with my brain these days, I'm lucky if I can remember any names at all! I do remember the names of my best friends while in school but, even though I'd recognize the faces of most of the others, I couldn't remember their names. So, just how many years is "several" to you, hmmmmm????? Is it more than my "several"? Actually my several would be decades, not years.

The last school photograph that I have was taken in 1983 and I was 13 years old. I will let you do the mathematics as it was one subject that I would work tirelessly to skip ... PS Dont tell anyone else Have fun.

Geez, you're just a baby! Well, okay, in my eyes you are. In 1983, I was getting ready to have my second son and I had waited until I was in my late 20's to even BEGIN having children! Oh, to have been 13 in 1983! Oh, your secret is safe with me.

I can't really remember most of my old photos at schools. And the funny part, they remember me more than them. I really wish we have a grand reunion so we can make good old memories back.

Why dont you try and organise a school reunion. You could track people down using the internet social networks, like Facebook, Bebo and Twitter.Once you find a few you will be amazed how quick you connect with others. It's like a snowball rolling down a hill, it just gets bigger and bigger. Have fun and happy hunting.

Well if people still remember your name from school then this would be a good thing. Just shows you have not lost your childhood good looks, Always think positive, have fun.

Actually I seldom contact to my primary and high school friends. I don't often contact to my college friends, too. And as time goes by, I can't remember all of their names. I can only remember some of my good friends' names. Others seem to be strangers to me already. I love China

My kids were going through an old yearbook of mine and making fun of how we all looked...I really was amazed at all the names i remembered as well...and the people that I couldn't stand seemed to stand out more than the ones I liked!!!

I used to have a hard time remembering names and faces of childhood friends, elementary and high school classmates. But because of Facebook, you can now stay connected with your old friends and classmates. If ever some of them don't have an account in facebook, you can still chat with somebody who've seen them lately and keep updated.
