This verb does not have a standard subject-focused verb counterpart', i.e., there are no such words like "umalam" or "mag-alam". Maybe that's because knowing is always focused on the thing to be known.
Usage Note: "Alamin" is not used when its focus is on a named or known person. "Kilalanin" is used instead because this word suggests knowing more about the person than just his/her name.
