I just met onea person in the elevator at work, and he seemed friendly enough and asked which department I work for etcseemed to strike up a friendly conversation with me.  

Is it okay if I ask what his name is in thethis short conversation so that I can say Hi"Hi" the next time I meet him?

I am a bit confused because:

  1. It would be literally the third or fourth sentence in the whole conversation
  2. I don't know how to actually ask the question without sounding abrupt
