People like the sound of their own name. When you say someone's name after meeting them, like, "Nice to meet you, Bob," it lets them know that you aren't just seeing them as another person - you recognize them for who they are, to some degree.

I guess it's like a subtle stroke to the ego. "Ooh, he remembered my name!"

I don't know why I'm writing about all this name business, but it just came into my head and stuck there. I should go on ahead with the other writing stuff I have to do today. Git 'er dun!
