The <TD> tag is used to enter a single data item in a table.  Example:

<TABLE WIDTH="75" BORDER="1">
<TR>
<TD>Item One</TD><TD>Item Two</TD>
</TR>
<TR>
<TD>Item 3</TD><TD>Item 4</TD>
</TR>
</TABLE>

There is no official name, but it's imho derived from table data cell, thus table data.

With respect to this comment please be aware that much of what is shown in that example has been deprecated as of html 5.

Width and border attributes are deprecated - you are required to use styling for these attributes now.

Your question indicates you are new to HTML - starting with the <td> element is starting in the middle and trying to work backwards.

Try these links as an introduction to html (https://www.w3schools.com/html/)
Tables https://www.w3schools.com/html/html_tables.asp

Try out the examples - they should give you a good start in understanding what HTML is and how the <Table> element and child elements work.
