It is like how you can say, "What is your name?" and "What are you called?" in English.

I wondered the same, I couldn't help but be reminded of 'Hva heter du?' in Norsk. Thanks for asking this!

"Hvad er jeres navn?" should also be correct since it's just a formal way of asking about someone's name.

It could be Hvad er dit navn? Sit would refer to 3rd person: 'her' or his'
