# 'Appendix' before the appendix name

I'm having a few problems with the appendix in my thesis. Right now I have the following setup

\documentclass[english]{uvamath}
\usepackage[title]{appendix}

normal chapters etc.

\begin{appendix}
\chapter{Name}
text
\end{appendix}
\end{document}


The problem now is that the chapter title shows as 'A. Name', but I would like it to be 'Appendix A. Name' (in the TOC as well as in the appendix itself). Also, I want to have 'Appendices' above the appendix section. This is already the case in the TOC because of \addappheadtotoc

but not in the appendix itself. How can I fix this?

This is described in the appendix-documentation, section 2. Use the appendices-environment, and put a few arguments when loading the package. I think it looks wierd calling both title and titletoc, so I would advice against it.

Code

\documentclass[english]{book}
\usepackage[title,toc,titletoc,page]{appendix}
\begin{document}
normal chapters etc.
\tableofcontents
\begin{appendices}
\chapter{Name}
text
\end{appendices}
\end{document}
