I am attempting to give a player a named diamond sword using this command:

/give @p diamond_sword 1 0 {display{name:"Burn"}}

But I'm getting the following error:

Syntax error: Unexpected "{": at "0 {display>>{<<name:"Burn"

This happens on both Minecraft Pocket Edition and Minecraft PC. Can someone help me fix this? I really want to know how to use these and I haven't used command blocks untill now.

You are missing a colon after display
