    #include <iostream>

    int main ()

    {

    char x;

    cout << "Hi, whats your name?";

    char holds a single character. You might want to look up character arrays (char*) or std::string
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    you also forgot to put in "using namespace std;" under "#include<iostream>"

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main ()
    
    {
    
    char x[20];
    
    cout << "Hi, whats your name?";
    cin.getline(x,20,'\n');
    cout << "Your name is " << x <<endl;
    
    return 0;
    
    }
    this works (i think)... it's what you're looking for... the last endl is just for formatting... not necessary...
