Pouvez-vous me donner vos nom et prénom ?

Why is the plural "vos" used instead of votre?  What part of this sentence is plural?  I thought this was the formal "you" not plural

Hi Kay, 

It actually stops you repeating votre twice so -

vos

applies to

nom et pronom.

The speaker viewed nom et prénom as two "names". Hence, probably, the plural. I don't think it would be wrong to say ...votre nom et prènom.
