1. My name is XYZ.

2. XYZ is my name.

Are both the sentences correct?

Is (2) possible ?

Hi,

Both are correct, but we usually say number one.

For a first name, yea 1 is used more. However, last name?

1. My last name is Brown.
2. Brown is my last name.

When I hear "My name is....." I expect to hear only a first name with possibly the last name.
