Powershell: Select AD info and output to email subject displays @{Name=...

I am trying to pull user information from Active Directory and send it in an email.

$Sam = read-host "Enter username:"
$FullDisplayName1 = Get-ADUser $Sam | select-object Name
$MessageSubject = "Information for " + $FullDisplayName1 + " : " + $Sam + ". "

The email sends successfully but the subject looks like:

Information for @{Name=John Smith} : jsmith.

How do I remove the @{Name= from the Name in the subject line
