    The latter. What is the difference between 'my', 'mine' and 'me'?

    You could also say "...Richa's name and mine.."

    I agree -- it's cleaner. Otherwise, Risha needs an apostrophe, and names should be plural. Risha's and my names.

    I think it sounds quite awkward and advocate for euncu's suggestion.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
