Why can't you also say 'ik heb het moeilijk gevonden om die naam te onthouden'?

Because in this case, "heb gevonden" is only used if you lost something, and now you found it.

However, if there is a word of time (e.g. "altijd") then you can use it (for some reason): "Ik heb het altijd moeilijk gevonden om die naam te onthouden".
