Input() error - NameError: name '…' is not define


I am getting an error when I try to run this simple script:

input_variable = input ("Enter your name: ")
print ("your name is" + input_variable)

Let's say I type in "Niraj", the error I am getting is:

line 1, in <module>
input_variable = input ("Enter your name: ")
File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
NameError: name 'Niraj' is not defined



In Python 2.7, when you read something through input function, it will be considered as a Python expression. If you want to take in string inputs, you have to use the raw_input function like below.

input_variable = raw_input ("Enter your name: ")
