Hello, Darío!

I'm not sure whether I got your point. The page numbers are bound to appear
even if you use "\markboth". If your problem is that only "name" appears in

http://www.latex-community.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=11685

then the answer is this: "In one-sided printing [which is the default for the
article document class], all pages are considered to be right-hand ones" (page
90 of Lamport's book on LaTeX 2e). So you just need to choose two-sided
printing:

\documentclass[twoside]{article}

Section 4.4 of "The Not So Short Introduction to LaTeX 2e" (freely available
online) also hints that the "fancyhdr" package might be useful for you.

Hope this helps! --Pablo.
