I have written

\begin{appendix}
\section{name1}
blah blah
\section{name2}
\subsection{name3}
\end{appendix}

It calls them 'A name1' etc, I want it to write 'Appendix A: name1'

How do I get it to do this?

My class environment is article which I don't want to change because that will change other things like the numbering.

help!

You have to go into the style file and hack it to ensure that you get Appendix A etc..as opposed to A, B etc......

Staff Emeritus
Locate the article.cls file, find the line that defines the appendix layout, and amend it to what you want it to look like.

Noooo! First, COPY article.cls to a file with a different name and a .cls extension. Then, do the hacking.
