Yes.  For me, it goes either way depending on the person.  I'm more likely to remember the face, though.

I might wake up early and go running. I also might wake up and win the lottery. The odds are about the same.

first option.

only times I ever remember the name but not the face are when it's people I was never around much but heard their name a lot (like "oh man remember ___ ____ from high school? Me: ":V")

I'm also more a visual person. Unless I know the person fairly well or they made an impact on me, I'm terrible at names, which is weird considering I can usually remember the most obscure things about people.

Usually no problems, but sometimes I don't remember last names if they're too wonky.

Third option. When it comes to remembering someone, what it is that I remember about a person or how I remember them varies a great deal. With some people, I remember everything about them. While with others. I remember any other number of details about them but not everything. I know some by name, others by their voice, several by their habits or abilities, many by their past histories and a few by their face or appearance.

Uh, well.. I suppose names, But that depends on how long I've known the person. If it's a one time meeting it's more like "other people?". Or well, thinking about it I am not sure any more, I keep getting these different blurry memories about forgetting stuff.

I've had experience with both. Sometimes I'll remember everything about someone (usually a patient) but forget what they look like :-X Other times, I'll remember everything except their name. Occasionally a name will get stuck in my head but I can't remember who it is as well. Most frequently, I think I forget names.

I can easily remember faces, but I'm not really good with names and it gets pretty awkward sometimes. :-X
