    Why the down vote? Is this not an appropriate question to ask? – Mike B Aug 6 '13 at 7:06

Post anchor is what I have always heard them called. However, Home Depot stores sell them as a Post Base.

This is a post-base anchor for what looks to be a 4x4 post.

They come in different sizes and types. This particular kind has a bolt on the bottom that sinks into the concrete by at least 4 inches to secure it to the concrete.
