 I've forgotten your name. Could you remind me?
 Se me olvidó tu nombre. ¿Podrías repetírmelo?

The verb forget does not take an indirect object marked by at, whereas leave may.

So, in

I left my homework at home.

the at home phrase is an argument of the verb, specifying its meaning. whereas in

I forgot my homework at home.

it is not, and can only be an adjunct: specifying where the action took place, not being part of the meaning of the action. Furthermore, forget in the special sense of leave behind (as opposed to forget about) is not really compatible with such a locational phrase.

As Frustratedwithformsdesigner says, the second sentence is understandable in context, but it is not something that a native speaker would say, except in the rather unusual meaning where at home is an adjunct; something like

I was thinking about my homework all the time I was at the gym, and then on the bus, but I forgot my homework at home.

For your meaning, either

I forgot my homework. or I left my homework at home. would be the normal ways to express it.
