Some people use the abbreviation IIRC for "if I remember correctly".

I would suggest dropping the "I think..." and making the sentence "He's called Blake, if I remember correctly." Or else making it "I think he's called Blake", and dropping the "if I remember correctly".


Thanks,

Why is it we have to use the present tense in this case?
