You're looking for a template tag that let's you echo out the title of a post or page? I'm not sure I follow, as even the built-in WordPress themes automatically show the title of the post/page. However, if you're creating a new template, you can add the title of a post/page by going to functions.php and adding:

add_theme_support( 'title-tag' );

If you just want to echo out the page/post title in a template you're creating (e.g., single-post.php), you can write:

     echo get_the_title();

Hope this helps
