"Hello, girl, whose name I do not recall."

duolingo: Correct solutions: Hallo, Mädchen, an dessen Name ich mich nicht erinnere.

It should be "an dessen Namen" because "an" goes with Akkusativ: "an den Namen".

I lost a heart here :-(

I translated this as "Hallo, Mädchen, dessen Name rufe ich nicht zurück." and got it wrong and I'm not sure why. Can anyone help?

Zurückrufen means "to call back", while "recall" in this sentence is used as remember.
