    Look for the rand() function and learn about pointers, especially char ones.
    Do not make direct eye contact with me.

    You can use an array of chars like
    char name[30] but that only read up until a space i BELIEVE.

    also use a string included in the string library

    string name;

    and use getline function to input the name.

    getline(cin, name, 30);
