Determine the nyumber of times a value appears in an Excel column

I have a column of duplicate values that I need to determine how many times each value appears.  In column A i have a list of values (names), in column B I would like the number of times that name appears in the list to appear as a number.  So if the name PETER appears 10 times in a list of 100 names, I would like the number 10 to appear next to Peter's name each time in column B.  Is there a formula to do this?
