What about yours?

Hallooo.
So I was wondering if it’s OK to say “what about yours” after someone’s asked for my name, like:
- What’s your name?
- My name’s Flora, what about yours?

It sound a bit odd to me but just wanted to know if it’s grammatically correct.

    Greetings.

    Within context it is fine. I've told you my name. Are you going to tell me yours?
    (What about yours? Don't keep it a secret.)

    I agree that it's fine, but I would probably say: My name's Flora. How about you?

    There are various possibilities here, and what is said is more dependent on personality than grammar.
