error when debugging

Can someone tell me what i'm doing wrong with line 11

#include <iostream>
#include <string>
int main(void)
{
using std::cout;
using std::cin;
using std::string;
string name = ""; // "" means empty string
cout << "what is your name?\n" ;
cin >> name;
cout << "\nhello name " << name.c_str() "\n" ;
return 0;
}

try changing
cout << "\nhello name " << name.c_str() "\n" ;
to
cout << "\nhello name " << name.c_str() << "\n" ;
or even
cout << "\nhello name " << name << "\n" ;
