    2) "My name is John, and yours?"

    Re: Need help

    The first is ungrammatical.

    The second is terse and unfriendly - even rude.

    On meeting somebody new, say 'Hello, I'm John. How are you?'

    If you say this in a friendly manner and with a smile, the other person will respond 'Hi, my name's Alphonse - nice to meet you'.
