During the final battle in Avengers: Endgame,

Thanos has several types of monsters fighting on his side. The known ones were definitely the Chitauri and Leviathans from The Avengers (2012) and the Outriders from Avengers: Infinity War (2018).

Additionally, there were some kind of

giant Gorilla/ape kind of beast (image below).

The giant gorilla/ape creature the image isn't very clear

What creature is this? Does it have a specific name (like the ones given to the Chitauri, Outriders etc.)?

According to an interview with WETA Digital Visual Effects Supervisor Matt Aitken, these creatures are called "Chitauri gorillas".

In a new interview with SlashFilm, WETA Digital Visual Effects Supervisor Matt Aitken discussed the battle and revealed who was on Thanos' side. Aitken confirmed that the fight featured three groups of alien warriors who appeared in previous Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.

Aitken revealed that this massive battle introduced the Chitauri gorillas.

"We see the Chitauri leading them out by chains and then they set them free," Aitekn said. "These are not quite King Kong sized, but yeah, giant gorilla-ish, alien gorilla creatures who are a formidable force to be reckoned with on the battlefield."
