Which sentence is correct?

A. Many people have heard the name Albert Einstein.

B. Many people have heard the name, Albert Einstein.

Is the comma after the name necessary?

Thanks!

    These two sentences are correct but the first one means that Albert Einstein is a name many people have heard, while in the second, you're talking to Albert Einstein (or someone you jokingly call that way) about a name many people have head.

    The second, no comma. That doesn't mean there aren't cases where a comma shouldn't be used in a simple sentence like that, but this isn't one of them. A comma would add a pause when speaking (for emphasis), and you don't want a pause there.

    No, the comma should not be there.
