Referencing property in object through key

In my Chrome browser, the assignment of a property through a key value doesn't work. What is the reason of that ? Example is done exactly the same way as shown by Jim.

var key="Last_name"; console.log(me[key])

Last_name is a valid property assigned, I am able to call this in the normal way
