[pe mine] mă cheamă ...; ce mai faci/face,ti; cum o duce,ti


Explanation:
"mă cheamă" is most the most common, but in a group of people where you introduce others and yourself you may want to add "pe mine"

"ce ma faci" or "cum o duci", "cum ^i,ti merge" is for somone you know well, "ce ma face,ti" is the more formal "how are you", but in Romanian it is more than just a "phrase", so I would only say that if I kind of expect an answer.
(,t is equivalent to a sound made bt ts)

alo


Explanation:
Forgot the \"Hello\", which would be \"alo\"
(a as in father) if you\'re on the phone, or else \"bună\".

And I definitely wouldn\'t ask someone to which I have just introduced myself \"ce mai face,ti\".

Buna, sunt.../Buna, numele meu este/Buna ziua, ma numesc


Explanation:
Buna is "hello" - informal.
Buna ziua is a more formal way of addressing (equivalent to "good day")

numele meu este/ma numesc/ma chiama are different forms of saying "my name is". Their use depends of the circumstances. For example, a marketing person will say "numele meu este" - implies a more formal approach

"how are you" - ce mai faci/faceti? Faci - informal, faceti - formal
