Mein Name ist Anna; Ich heiße Anna

Hi Anna,

You could use either phrase: the first phrase means "My name is Anna" in English whereas the second phrase means "I am called Anna". Both phrases are used, the second one possibly more colloquially.

Ich bin die Anna

The two previous suggestions are very good indeed.
The above is a third option meaning 'I am the Anna' and is often used when indtroducing oneself.
