Vous vous appelez Laura in French has the same function as "Your name is Laura" in English. Therefore that's the proper translation. The fact that, literally, it translates to "you call yourself Laura" in English is not really important and only confuses the issue.

In English, if you want to learn someone's name, you don't ask, "What do you call yourself?". However, in French you DO say, "Comment vous vous appelez?"
