Populate dropdown from database table - Classic ASP

Hi Experts,
I have a hard coded dropdown on my page, but I would like to populate it from a database table instead.
This is my code, and the table name from where I would like to populate it is QueueEnvironment and the two column names are Name, and QueueEnvironmentId. How can I make the option value QueueEnvironmentId correspond to Name in the dropdown?

<select name="Name">
<%
Dim rsName
set rsName=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.recordset")
sql="SELECT distinct(Name) FROM QueueEnvironment order by Name"
Set rsName = AdoCon.Execute(sql)
%>
<option></option>
<%
Do While Not rsName.EOF
Response.Write "<option value=''>"& rsName("Name") &"</option>"
rsName.MoveNext
Loop
Response.Write "</select>"
%>
