In series 6 , The Doctor lies that he told River his name (which River falsifies in the end of the episode). Yet in The Name of The Doctor she knows The Doctor's real name and even opens The Doctor's tomb with it.
In "The Wedding of River Song" we think the Doctor (Matt Smith) has shared his name with River, but it's later revealed that he actually hasn't . Long story short: the Doctor lies. Recently, fans have hypothesized that the reason why the Doctor never speaks their own name is for their own safety.
The Eleventh Doctor meets River – The Time of Angels / Flesh and Stone ( 2010 ) River meets the Eleventh Doctor for the first time. This was also the first time we'd caught up with her since her 2008 debut.
Saying his name there only has one reason though: he really thought he was dying, and knew she would have to know his name for him to trust her when he first met her . (wibbly wobbly, timey wimmey...). But, at that point, Mels was not to be trusted yet. Entrusting her with that knowledge was dangerous.

In Let's Kill Hitler, When River first meets the doctor, his last request before he dies is for Mels to deliver a whispered message to River. On The Wedding of River Song he whispers, "Look into my eye." and then lies and says that he just told her his nam
I suppose the reason why he tells her his name is because in the Library, River told 10 than he had told her his name . It is a causal loop. He has to tell her because it already happene
The Doctor doesn't tell River his name , he tells her to look into his eye so she can see that the real him is in a tesselecta body suit- that way she would agree to shooting him on Lake Silencio because she then knew that she wouldn't actually be shooting the docto
The simple answer is that we do not know . River's method of learning the Doctor's name has not yet been shown or explained on-screen. It is strongly implied that she knew it before she died in the Library, however, as it's the Doctor's explanation for why he trusts he
In The Name of the Doctor, Matt Smith's Time Lord told Clara he had chosen the name 'the Doctor' as a promise – a promise never to be cruel or cowardly; to never give up, and never give in. Famously, he refused to use the title during the Time War, feeling his actions didn't live up to the promise
