For some of us, the explanation of certain phrases should include the literal word-for-word translation related to the meaning, because we learn by association, not memorization. In this case, "Me llamo Juan" does not literally mean "My name is Juan", but as you noted earlier in this discussion, it means "I call myself Juan".  It helps to understand WHY a phrase is constructed as it is and relate that to the English form.
