On my name all you need to do is remove the space from my name and capitalize Name like this:

var myName; // Cap N in name and remove space

thank you joe. I finally got it. Does everyone have trouble at first?

I'm not sure but I think most people just forget that variables aren't supposed to have a space in between them but are supposed to be together like on this challenge.
