The question is largely about what you're trying to accomplish. What will be 
interpreting your HTML's semantics? I can think of a few options:

- If this is part of a series of labeled paragraphs, perhaps you are looking 
for dl/dt/dd
- A heading could indeed be appropriate in some cases
- strong is probably most generally what you are looking for. Indeed, 
https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/semantics.html#the-strong-element uses 
it in the very first example ("Importance" and the "Example" paragraph after 
- If this is purely a stylistic label, span indeed makes sense.
