Best Answer

At the start of the book Piggy asked Ralph what his name was so it was obvious they didn't know each other. Once Ralph had blown the conch and boys had started to arrive at the platform Piggy asked them for their names, evidence that they were strangers to him. When the choir, led by Jack, arrived Piggy made introductions, which indicated that the boys in the choir didn't know any of the other boys. At the end of the meeting when Ralph, Simon and Jack were heading off to climb the mountain Ralph told Piggy that his job was to collect names. If he'd known the other boys he'd have already known their names.
