Yep, I have one with something like 5000 pages! Anyways, yes, se llama is correct. Its the same as with names:
Se llama Rodrigo - He calls himself (his name is) Rodrigo.

I know how you feel. When I see a new word, I open my dictionary and suddenly realise I know about 5% of its contents. It has over 2100 pages.

As far as I'm concerned, they are all awkward. At times I think it's all coming together, and later my mind is so boggled that I think I'll never get past ¿Cómo está? I find it so hard to think quickly to carry on a conversation.

Just thought, El restaurante llama Sundry House indicates that the restaurante can speak and is calling "Sundy House".

The correct way to put it:
El restauante se llama Sundy House.
