    The sound of your name works.

    The sound of your name works. = Your name sounds nice. (Shenghuo Huihua Wanyong Shouce, page 31, by Wang Qi)

    The above equation is quoted from an English book published in Taiwan. Do native speakers agree that they are interchangeable?

    I don't find The sound of your name works​ at all natural. No native speaker would say it.

    I agree that it's a quote from the cited book. I don't think that's the question you meant to ask though.
