I feel like an idiot. I've done it every way. var my name ; and var message ="my name";

var my name;
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

<script src="scripts.js"></script>

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.
