Accepted Answer

Did you change any names? The form names have to map 1-1 with your Action parameters. In this case, the "name" parameter was not passed to the controller action, so it is null.

Wild guess, need more information (method signature of action)

You'll receive that error if you have some properties decorated by DisplayAttribute with empty Name ([DisplayAttribute(Name = "", Description = "Any description")])
