Working with names and extension

Suppose I have an option to upload a file of PDF/Word or may be few more format.

<form >
  <input type="file" name="pic" accept="image/*">
  <input type="submit">

Is it possible to retrieve the name of the document and its extension using javascript /jQuery ?

Yes that is stored in a property called files on the file element.

Thanks but could you please elaborate little bit.

Further elaboration is available at

Thanks @Paul_Wilkins. Since I am converting the form values into a javascript object, do you think information related to file name and type could be included in the object as well?
