I have a hard time remembering names, so I use mnemonic devices and relate new people to people I know or famous people. When I first met Kathleen at the cafe downstairs from my place, I remembered her name by changing her last name from Kyllo to Turner in my head. To this day I just call her Turner. As for the light, sometimes the sun is the only source you need.
