    of which

    He's written a book of which I've forgotten the name.

    He's written a book of which the name I've forgotten.

    He's written a book the name of which I've forgotten.


    He's written a book whose name I have forgotten.

    Would you possibly tell me which one you use or proper?

    And , would you possibly consider the following?



    things: of which; that ... of
    Instead of whose, we can use of which or that ... of (less formal) to refer to
    things, and these are sometimes preferred. The most common word order is
    noun + of which or that ... of, but of which ... + noun is also possible.
    Compare the following four ways of expressing the same idea.
    He's written a book whose name I've forgotten.
    He's written a book the name of which I've forgotten.
    He's written a book that I've forgotten the name of
    He's written a book of which I've forgotten the name.
