That code will find the first Palmer in the list, but since you break out of your loop as soon as the first match is found, you won't ever find more than one match.
So you'll want to print out each match as it is found, and continue looping until there are no more names to check against.

Hope this helps.

If you've already #included string, why not use strings (and the accompanying members of the string class) rather than character arrays?

Yes, and also why not use a vector<string>?

Your lookup code is a duplication of STL code.
