Hi, Is it possible to prompt a user to input name in swift programming in playground?

Unfortunately, Swift Playgrounds do not support user input from what I can tell.

You’ll need to instead create a new command line application and use Swift to prompt for input that way.

Most of the exercises in this book require user input.

A quick Google search should show you how to prompt for input in Swift. I found a few ways when I just looked, although I am not at all an expert with Swift.

When I made this program, I actually built the UI with a text field and a button, and wired things up that way. I learned a lot about how to build graphical iOS apps that way.
