Default What Name?

What name is given to this opening?

1. e4 e5
2.nf3 d6.

Is it a variation of an Italian game?

I would have waited some moves to give a name, ... sometimes can
traspose to a:

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 Nd7 4.c4 Old Indian

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 d6 3.Bc4 Be7 4.d4 Hungarian

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 Nc6 5.Ab5 Spanish

....

That is the Phillidor Defense.

Theory recommends 3 d4 taking advantage of the possibility to open the
center
