    At a music concert, I want to get a ticket which is supposed to be reserved. How can I say this?

    Is "Minä tulen nouttamaan lippu joka on varattu minun nimellä" good?

    (Minä) tulen noutamaan lipun joka on varattu nimelläni.

    If you were to get several tickets, it would naturally be ...liput, jotka on varattu...

    You might want to omit the first "minä" as the use of personal pronouns in the written language usually stresses the doer of the action, and I think here the point isn't who is doing but what is being done.
    Similarly, I'd encourage you to use possessive suffixes in written language: nimelläni vs minun nimellä/minun nimelläni. All of which are perfectly okay.
