both is fine, but it is "den" instead of "dem" in the second case

Ich habe eine Reservation unter dem Namen
Ich habe eine Reservation auf *den* Namen

Reservation is fine, but the word "Reservierung" sounds better to me. (used exactly the same)

And of course you could also say "Ich habe auf den Namen xxx reserviert"

"Reservation" is wrong (except in Switzerland). Only "Reservierung" is correct (although "Reservation" will probably be understood). –  fzwo Dec 15 '11 at 15:48
