Can someone discover my name from just my mobile phone number?

Is it possible for an individual or company to gain my name or personal information if they only have my mobile phone number?

No, unless you have linked them up on somewhere like FB.

I hoped and suspected that was the case...

 

Google advertises many apps and sites to identify names to numbers...

All they can find is your network but that's easy as each network has its allocated sets of dialling codes.
