Excel VBA Formula Loop issue

Column A,B consists of First and Last Names.

Column A           Column B
Frank                  Doe
Joe                     Smith

Open in new window

I would like to pick the name value and generate a statement like in column J:  
My Name is Frank Doe
My Name is Joe Smith

I ended up using a formula inside a For Loop; but with compile and run time errors.

For cnt = selectednumber To lastrownumber 
    Range("J" & cnt).Formula = "=""My name is (""& $A &cnt & $b &cnt ""."""
Next cnt

Open in new window


Any help is appreciated.
