    Hi David.

    If you say you are terrible with names, you mean to say that you aren't very good at remembering people's names.

    Here's the definition of quirk:

    1. A peculiarity of behavior; an idiosyncrasy: “Every man had his own quirks and twists” (Harriet Beecher Stowe).
    2. An unpredictable or unaccountable act or event; a vagary: a quirk of fate.
    3. A sudden sharp turn or twist.
    4. An equivocation; a quibble.
    5. Architecture. A lengthwise groove on a molding between the convex upper part and the soffit.

    Hope that helps. ;)
