The name attribute specifies the name of an <input> element. The name attribute is used to reference elements in a JavaScript, or to reference form data after a form is submitted. Note: Only form elements with a name attribute will have their values passed when submitting a form.

hi we are giving a specific group/class to know quickly (ie., suppose if we give name=username, the applicant should fill his /her username only.). And we can use placeholder attribute also, to know specifically. thank you.
