in thread To Pattern Match or not to Pattern Match

I think the problem here is that it loops through the 1st 10 names in @names and since none of those 10 matches it prints out "Name does not exist" 10 times. I need it to loop through all 20 strings in @names and if it doesnt find a match then print "Name does not exist" only once, buts only my guess.
