I'm in the same boat as you with the names I’m the most distracted person you will ever meet. But that is because I’m doing other things when people introduce themselves to me (which I know is bad etiquette) I just can’t help it my focus time spam is about 30 seconds. But the more stuff we have going on in our lives the less we can concentrate on the smaller things such as names. One thing I do to remember names is whenever I meet a new person I try to treat them as if they were the most important person in the world, like if I was meeting the president or something I try to focus in them and you have no idea how much that works.
From the information you provided it seems like you literally can't retain any new information at all, if that is it is possible that you've just got a bit of a bad memory or if it is genuinely as bad as you say then you need to go get it checked out by a neurologist.
Good Luck.

Everyone is born right-handed. Only the greatest overcome it.

thanx for the replying to my post. i was perfectly fine like a year back. infact i had a gud memory, was gr8 with numbers, general knowledge etc. i had a gud IQ level but now watever is happening to me is outrageous. i cant even recall things happend to me in near past nw. i didnt had bad memory but nw i cant figure out wats happening.
if i go to a psychiatrist or neurologist, they'll come up with number of diseases or disorders like depression, stress etc etc. that wont b helpful infact that will make me more problematic.

Maybe you're overloading with information? Maybe you need a break? Have you thought about taking part time studies instead? At least then you won't be too pressured and you might have room in your memory for the little stuff. I know when I get overloaded with information, I tend to forget what I had for dinner the night before. That's when I know it's time to take a break and step back from the study to get my head around things.

Otherwise, you might have to see a psych. I don't know what a psych is/could be like, but I'm sure they try to keep it as un-intimidating as possible.

Because in the end, it doesn't even matter.
