Possible to add words to the alert from prompt?

In this video you are given a prompt with the var visitorName, then the alert with (visitorName). Is it possible to add text to the alert so when the box pops up it would say something like Hi, visitorName?

Try this in your developer tools.

var  visitorName = "Ashley";
alert("Hi, " + visitorName);

edited for accuracy Note: you may get an "undefined" that prints out in the log. Ignore this for now :)

That't it! Thank you!
