Try to remember the whole phrase. It is similiar to German "Wie heißt du?"

It is like "How are you called/How do they call you"

"What" also gets translated as "jaký" or "který" in Czech. Here, you could ask "Jaké je tvoje jméno?", but "Jak se jmenuješ?" is used more often when asking for someone's name.
