Re: Names

I tend to use association and repetition in three sensory representational systems to help remember. As I watch (visual) or do (feeling) a technique, I see (visual) the name written on it, I move slightly with it (feeling), and say (auditory) the name to myself. After a while of repetition, it associates and I get it.

Understanding the component meanings, as described far better than I could, is also very helpful. Try to actually see and feel it as you understand (hear) it.
