The French phrase "Je t'aime" means "I love you."

The verb "to love," or aimer, and has just as much weight in French as it does in English. If you wanted to make the distinction between being very, very fond of someone and loving them, you'd say "Je t'adore" instead, which translates literally as "I adore you." However, it's worth noting that the verb "to adore," or adorer, is used much more commonly in France than it is in English-speaking countries.

I don't think this is a name, as opposed to a phrase which simply means I Love You.
