Having an effect of round spot light on the picture, so in the middle it's lighter and close to corners darker — what is the name of this effect in photography?

What is the technique for this in Lightroom?

Vignetting - In the Develop module if you expand the Effects section, you will see what they call the Post-Crop Vignetting tool. Adjust the sliders as you see fit.
