This is the first name I've seen that is clearly self-descriptive:
maketuples. It is a little bit wordy but it is also pretty darn clear
about what is going on!

zip is fine with me, but if we were to choose a brand-new name, I like
the make_pairs that someone proposed, or, since I guess it can work on
more than two lists, make_tuples.  Or how about tuple_up? :)
