You could try scaling it using this function:

FontString:SetTextScale(scale)

Where FontString is changed to PlayerName and assumingly the scale is a number between 0 and 1

But not sure how you would get it working without creating an addon.

Thanks for the message, since I am using another language, the default makes name text size look big, but I want it to change size.

You could do something like:
Lua Code:
  1. local function SizeName(self)
  2.     local font, size = self.name:GetFont()
  3.     self.name:SetFont(font, size-2)
  4. end
  5. SizeName(PlayerFrame)
  6. SizeName(TargetFrame)
  7. for i=1, 4 do
  8.     SizeName(_G["PartyMemberFrame"..i])
  9. end

Add additional unit frames to size. Adjust the size to your liking.

You can play with the naming and turn it into a macro or copy/paste to addon.bool.no to create/download as a small addon that will run when you log in.

You neeed to make sure you're using the correct frames
Code:
SizeName(TargetFrameToT)
SizeName(FocusFrame)
The UI uses the TargetofTargetFrameTemplate to create ToT frames but uses the parents frame name and adds the "ToT" suffix so the TargetFrame Target of Target is created as TargetFrameToT
