    Instead of "goto"-method?

    Hi!
    I'm fairly new to programming, and I've realized that people reaaalllyy don't like "goto"-methods. I was wondering how one might write code that allows a user to decide how many entries to put in? For example, in the code below, the user inputs a name, and is then asked wether he/she wants to input another name. How could I do this without having to use go-to method?

    Thanks in advance

    Code:
    using System;
    
    namespace GoToTest
    {
        public class GoToTest
        {
            public static void Main()
            {
                InputName:
                string name;
                Console.Write("Input name: ");
                name = Console.ReadLine();
    
                string decision;
                Console.WriteLine(""); //Empty line for increased readability
                Console.WriteLine("Would you like to input another name? Yes - No");
                decision = Console.ReadLine();
                if (decision == "Yes")
                {
                    goto InputName;
                }
                else
                {
                    Console.WriteLine("Name is " + name);
                }
    
    
    
            }
        }
    }

                              name = Console.ReadLine();
                          }
                          else
                          {
                              Console.WriteLine("Name is " + name);
                              isUserExiting = true;
                              Console.ReadLine();
                          }
    
                          if(decision == "Exit")
