In Spanish, when you want to say what your name is, or what someone else's name is, the most common way to express this is by using the reflexive verb "llamarse".
It is a regular -ar verb in El Presente, so this is how it is conjugated:
|él / ella / Ud.||se llama|
|nosotros / nosotras||nos llamamos|
|vosotros / vosotras||os llamáis|
|ellos / ellas / Uds.||se llaman|
Here are some examples:
We included all the personal subject pronouns (yo, tú, él...) in the examples above to show which pronoun goes with which subject, but you can easily drop them. It will still be corrrect and it is actually more common to drop them, so "Ella se llama Clara" = "Se llama Clara".
Notice that we used the English translation "my name is, your name is, ..." as this is the most common way to translate it. However, in Spanish we don't tend to use "Mi nombre es..., su nombre es...", we much prefer to use the verb "llamarse".
Llamarse is a reflexive verb, i.e. uses reflexive pronouns placed in front of the verb when it is conjugated, e.g. "me llamo, se llama, os llamáis...". It is as if we are saying "I call myself, she calls herself, you call yourselves..."
Have a look at the reflexive pronouns:

|se||himself / herself / itself|
These pronouns cannot be omitted.
This would be incorrect:
Mi madre llama Rosa.
