[Gmsh] Assigning to String in Geometry Script

I am trying to programmatically build surface labels in my GMSH
script. My thought was to store the components I wish to concatenate
together in variables; however, I keep getting an error while trying
to use the strings. Consider the following minimum example
$ cat mwe.geo
name = "test";
Printf("name is", name);
When I pass this to `gmsh`, I get the following error
$ gmsh -0 mwe.geo
Info : Running 'gmsh -2 mwe.geo' [Gmsh 4.3.0, 1 node, max. 1 thread]

Error : 'mwe.geo', line 5 : Unknown variable 'name'
name is 0

I get the same error from the GUI. I tried using the
`name=Str("test");` syntax but that did not help. From what I can
tell, section 4.2.2 of the manual says this is the correct syntax, and
the thread linked below implies this should work. I also checked
against a new build of `tag/gmsh_4_4_1` in the repo and the result is
So my question is: What is the correct syntax for storing a string to
a variable in the geometry scripting language?
