Thank you all for participating in the challenge.

The correct answer is the first one: Neither of them knows the other one's name.

The points to remember here are:

'Neither of them' can be followed by either a singular verb (knows) or a  plural verb (know).
the other one's name (singular) - the others' names (plural) - Here, we're looking for the singular construction.
