Depends on the context but its either Emin7 in second inversion, G13, G6 or a Rootless CMaj9 Chord.

Em7. When you try figuring out the name of the chord, try to build a stack of thirds from the chord tones. Also, try to figure out the root note of the chord. Your chord has D, E, G and B in it. To build a stack of thirds, there needs to be a third between every note. There's a third between E and G. There's a third between G and B. And there's a third between B and D.

E G and B is an E minor chord (root note, minor third and perfect fifth makes a minor chord). The interval between E and D is a minor 7th. It's an E minor chord + a minor 7th which makes it an Em7 chord.

Just remember that there are no boring scales, just boring players.
