If you dream that you forget your name, or the names of others, you are under stress at work or school and feel overburdened with work.
It may also indicate that you have forgotten your true self or your family roots.
To hear your name being called, indicates that you are in touch and in tune with your spirituality.
It also makes you aware of your own uniqueness and highlights your individuality.
To see a familiar name written in your dream, symbolizes the way you feel about that person. Your intuition about them may turn out to be true.
Sometimes names in dreams are ways of reminding us of people in our lives.
If you don’t recognize the name, consider whether it sounds similar to the name of a person you know, or one from a TV show or movie that has been on your mind.
