For the second time I have watched my iPhone clear all the names from the contacts in my phone.

Does anybody know why this happens and if I can get the names back

It's a major problem with the way Apple tries to make things easier for its customers. Not sure how you get them back, but for the future I'd recommend moving to Android. You then store all your contacts in your Google account and you can always get them back.

Have you done an update recently? This was happening to me a lot. Updated and it's stopped and all contacts returned.

They should all be on the iCloud automatically anyway so you should be able to retrieve them from there I think.

more information would be useful. What are you doing when the contacts disappear ? If its not the first time, it could be that there is some action causing this.

I literally opened my contacts to phone somebody and they just went!!

Anyway not to worry and thank you for posting

My 5s is being delivered on thursday
