    which of these is correct?

    ''What's your name, then?'' or is ''What's your name then?'' fine?

    Is there some reason why you want to add "then" to the perfectly acceptable question "What's your name?"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I am none the wiser (a phrase you will understand perfectly as you are native speaker from the UK, according to your profile).
