So "nama" and "aku" form a contraction to be "Namaku"?

yes, the function of this "-ku" is to indicate the posession (mine)

the other one is "-mu" from "kamu" is to indicate the posession (yours)

So would I say "nama kamu" or "namamu"?

they both are the same, but since this question asking about "my name", the answer would be "nama saya" or "namaku"
