    Yes, it is.

    Note my corrections to your punctuation.

    Normally, it would be "asks me my name".

    Re: Ask for my age or ask my age

    And we can ask both together:
    She asked me my name and age.

    Re: Ask for my age or ask my age

    I would probably use "She asked me my name" but I have no problem with "She asked my name". Of course, only context would make it clear whether she asked the question to me or to someone else.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
