  • I'm not sure if this is available in MCPE yet. – cherryblossom Aug 16 '17 at 11:52

You didn't close the quotation marks. You wrote "help! instead of "help!".

Apart from that, NBT isn't available on MCPE, so it won't work anyway. But in Java edition, the syntax would be correct with the closed quotation mark.


The command is, /give @p (item_name) (amount) (data) {display:{Name:"(name)"}}
