What is the subject in the sentence
"My name Pablo it's said"
I have a confusion about if this sentence is correct in English and if so what's the subject. How is it analyzed syntactically?

It is bauxite, they concur.
They concur, it is bauxite.
Does the main clause change when the order of the clauses changes? I don't think so.
The main clause is "they concur".
The supplement content-clause which adds info about their concurring is "It is bauxite".
The subject of the main clause is they.
The subject of the content-clause supplement is it, with bauxite being a subject complement.
It is said, my name is Pablo.
My name is Pablo, it is said.
The main clause is "it is said".
The supplement content-clause which adds info about what is said is "My name is Pablo".
The subject of the main clause is "it".
The subject of the content-clause supplement is "my name", with "Pablo" being a subject complement.
P.S. This is parataxis. You could flip this analysis and make "It is bauxite" the main clause.
