First of all, you placed "wa" in the wrong place.

Watashi no namae wa Algas desu.

I don't understand Turkish so I don't know if there's any similarity, but wa is a particle to indicate its preceding word is the topic of the sentence.

Watashi = I
no = particle to indicate posessive
watashi no = of me, my

namae = name

desu is used to make it sound polite.

As for my name, (it's) Algas.

is the literal translation in English.

This made me laugh lol.

Now come on.
Ok, lets see Armenian.

Im (my) anune(name) xy-a(the actual name).

Or Hungarian.

A nevem(my name) xy(actual name).

Or even English.

My name is xy.

Guess what, I came to the conclusion that all the mentioned languages fall into one BIIIIIG family.

Besides, comparing languages and making up theories is cool, but if you have the slightest respect for yourself, you will only do it with proper knowledge.
