How do I add an empty space?

How can I make my first name and my last name appear with a space between since I do not use quotes, therefore I can't add an extra space in the quotes? Tha a lot.

var firstName = "Silvia";
var lastName = "Bogdan";
var fullName = firstName+ lastName;
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

You can simply add a string with a space in it:

  var fullName = firstName + " " + lastName;
