Info on its name and meaning

I'm just curious if this symbol has a specific name or what the history/meaning of it is. Anyone know? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

The cross, the anchor, and the heart represent the three theological virtues of faith, hope and charity respectivily. It is based on the cross and anchor symbol used by the early Christians in the catacombs, the added heart representing humanity. Many Catholic missionary services use this symbol.

Interesting. But does it have a cool name? like crux decussata or Crux Immissa or similar?
