Possible Suggestion/Solution #1

A soql query is used to retrieve the data held in object records.

To display the data held in the name field use apex:repeat to iterate over ObjName

< Apex:repeat value ="{!ObjName}" var="objVar" >

< Apex:outputText value ="{!objVar.Name}" />

< /apex:repeat >

If however you want to retrieve the field names you need a schema describe.

Schema.SObjectField> schemaFieldMap = Schema.SObjectType.Object1__c.fields.getMap();

Will give you a map of all the fields for your object. You can iterate over this map using apex:repeat to list out the field names in your VF page

Apex:repeat value="{!schemaFieldMap.keySet()}" var ="fname" Apex:outputText value ="{!fname"}" /apex:repeat

Here's how to render as a selectList

Controller :

public String nameList { get; set;}
        public List<SelectOption> getNames() {
            List<SelectOption> options = new List<SelectOption>();
            for(Object1__c obj : [Select Id, Name from Object1__c])
            options.add(new SelectOption(obj.Name,obj.Name));

            return options;

VF Page :

<apex:selectList value="{!nameList}" title="Choose a Name">
            <apex:selectOptions value="{!names}"/>
