I like to add chapter names in my header. Currently I used this command

 \fancyhead[RO,LE]{Chapter \thechapter}

which can only show the chapter number . How can I add names instead of numbers.

    Try \fancyhead[RO,LE]{\leftmark}. If that does not help, please show us a minimal working example. – Johannes_B Jun 9 '15 at 11:15
  • Do you mean adding the chapter title? – Bernard Jun 9 '15 at 11:15
  • Try this: Create \newcommand\myChapterTitle{}. At the beginning of each chapter, \renewcommand\myChapterTitle{whatever it is}. Then, in your heading, use \myChapterTitle instead of \thechapter. – RobtA Jun 10 '15 at 1:24
  • yeah , \leftmark is working fine for me – botguide Jun 12 '15 at 3:23

\fancyhead[RO,LE]{\leftmark} should do what you want.
