Mnemonic (radial to ulnar side): Some Lovers Try Positions That They Can Handle

Scaphoid, Lunate, Triquetrium, Pisiform (proximal row)
Trapezium, Trapezoid, Capitate, and Hamate (distal row)

n/b: alphabetically, 'i' comes before 'o' in trapezium and trpezoid a.k.a greater and lesser multangular bones respectively.

ScaFoid is commonly Fractured (causes avascular necrosis of proximal end)
Lunate is commonly disLocated (causes median nerve damage - on the radial side)
Fracture of Hook of Hamate (ulnar side) causes ulnar nerve injury.
