The IUPAC name would be 1-nonadecanoic acid.

I am not aware of a common name for this. Naturally occuring "fatty" acids have even numbers of carbons, such as 1-octadecanoic acid with 18, and these have "common" names like stearic acid. Odd numbered long chain acids are synthetic and typically do not have common names.
