I was wondering how necessary it is to remember the names of Psychologists. Obviously it's pretty important when outlining and explaining (AO1), but I wanted to know how important it is for the evaluation (A03).

A good example of this would be the Strange Situation in Attachment. The study was developed by Ainsworth, however, one point for evaluation is that Main and Solomon helped proved that Ainsworth may have overlooked a 4th attachment type.

How many marks would I potentially lose out on for referring to them as 'Psychologists' as opposed to using their actual names (Main and Solomon)?

My teacher says it's not neccessary for AO3 but I suppose it would strengthen your point if you can but shouldn't effect your mark too much.
If you're in any doubt check the specification

You need to know the key studies such as Asch, Zimbardo, Milgram etc. For AO3, as long as you make it clear which study you’re talking about you don’t have to name them.
