I have doubt what to use for making correct sentence like something bellow:

  1. Name of school is xyz

  2. Name of the school is xyz

Which one/both is correct ?


do they have any difference in its usage ?

  • Your title does not match what you are asking in your question. "something" could be anything... – user3169 Apr 9 '16 at 5:04
  • @user3169 please feel free to edit the title if some mistakes are there, as I am not an English origin person :) – Praveen George Apr 9 '16 at 5:06
  • Generally, you won't find 'a name' unless you are talking about more than one name. For instance, Neelkanth is a name of Shiv'. Rest in almost all cases, you'll find the name. – Maulik V Apr 9 '16 at 5:33

Since you are talking about a specific school (xyz) you need to use the for the definite nouns name and school:

The name of the school is xyz
