Is this the answer for 'What's his name?'?


Explanation:
In this case, DO NOT repeat 'él', which have already been used in the question (Cómo llama él?).
I suggest:
Se llama XXX.

Se llama XXX


Explanation:
La pregunta sería: "Cómo se llama?" sin necesidad de poner el pronombre él o ella, siempre y cuando el sujeto ya está definido. Menos utilizada es la expresión "Su nombre es XXX", demasiado literal y literaria.
