MySQL Question

Add link to my PHP echo

So I have a PHP script that fetches the 'names' of some ID's on my DB. It then displays these 'names' on my index page as a user begins to search in the search bar.
What I just can't seem to get working is the href link. I wish the 'names' that appear, hyperlink to their given page.
Example: I search for The Beatles in the search bar 'The Beatles' is displayed on my search result and when I click 'The Beatles' link it takes me to'thebeatles'.html and it gives me thebealtes.html based on the 'names' that was fetched by my PHP script.

$host = "localhost";
$user = "root";
$password = "";
$db = "images";

$conn=mysqli_connect($host, $user, $password, $db);


$q = $_GET['q'];
$query = "SELECT * FROM names WHERE names like '%$q%'";
$result = mysqli_query($conn, $query);
while($row = mysqli_fetch_assoc($result)){

$name = $row['names'];

echo '<a href=..........><div class="searchoutput">'.$name.'</a><br><div class="col-md-8"></div></div>';


If someone could help me figure out what I put where I have put href=........ that would be great.

Answer Source
$link = str_replace(' ', '', strtolower($name));
echo '<a href="'.$link.'html"><div class="searchoutput">'.$name.'</a><br><div class="col-md-8"></div></div>';
