You shouldn't need to memorise them. From your rant, you're obviously
going to remember "wget", so you just start each alias with "wget-"
and the rest of the name explains that alias's features, or which
site it's for, or whatever sort of memory jog you need:
etc. I assume you're familiar with command completion, so typing
$ wget-<TAB><TAB>   will list all the various aliases (or functions)
that you've written.
