Adam wife was Eve,
Abrahams wife was Sarah.
But how come the Bible never records Noahs wife's name?
Do any scholars know if it's recorded elsewhere?

The Midrash Genesis Rabbah (ed. Albeck: B'reshit 23) quotes R. Abba bar Kahana stating that Na'amah, the sister of Tuval-Kayin (see Genesis 4:22), was the wife of Noah, and she was called Na'amah (lit. pleasant) due to her proper behaviour:
ואחות תובל קין נעמה אמר ר' אבא בר כהנא נעמה אשת נח הייתה, ולמה נקראת נעמה שמעשיה נעימים
Presumably her name is not mentioned, since she has little screen time or character development. She is only ever mentioned in passing, e.g. in Genesis (7:7).
