What's the proper name for this?

the hopefully obvious fault with it is of course that the equator is half the length it should be. but it conserves the percentages of oceans/continents in each latitude, so it might be useful in some cases. (Mollweide (2:1) ellipse with 1:1 (circular) aspect that is, but has it got a short and recognized name?).
