ALTER DATABASE statement with Table Partitioning (SQL 2005)

I'm currently working on Table Partitioning. I have done everything succesfull for partitioning, what I'm struggling with is to use
" SELECT MAX(NAME) from sys.filegroups WHERE NAME NOT LIKE 'PRIMARY' " to get the last used FileGroup. Now this works just fine, but when I run the following script:
--Decalre variables
DECLARE @LastFilegroupName VARCHAR(50)
DECLARE @FilegroupName VARCHAR(50)

--Retuns the next FileGroup to be used
SET @LastFilegroupName = (select MAX(NAME) from sys.filegroups WHERE NAME NOT LIKE 'PRIMARY')
SET @LastFilegroupName = Replace(@LastFilegroupName,'FileGrp','')
SET @FilegroupName = 'FileGrp' + CAST((@LastFilegroupName + 1) as varchar(10))

--Alter database statement
ALTER DATABASE VadivelTesting
ADD FILEGROUP @NewFG_Name

This script gives the following error "Incorrect syntax near '@NewFG_Name'."

When I give it a static name it works fine, but not with the variable.

Please can someone help me, I'm in struggeling with this one.
