In your case you need a group by with the following criteria:

Thank you for your solution, I will try it out.Let's say I don't care about rows, i.e. I want every rows to display the sum of "Value" for every "Name", how would you do that?
you can add a calculated column and ignore all the row context except for the Name. The following calculated column will do that:
Total Value by Name =
SUM( 'myTable'[Value] ),
