    Which of your names should I mention to Mr XYZ ? This is OK.
    What name does Mr. XYZ know you by ? This is better.
    What shall I say to Mr. XYZ about who sent me to him ? This doesn't work in this situation.

    Thank you.
    "Which of your names" is less redundant.

    I think 'Which one of your names' is OK.

    Not a teacher.
