What do you mean "it's not working"? Does this cause a compiler error? If so, what is the error and which line of code causes it? If not, does it run? What happens when you run it? How does the result differ from what you expect? We need some more information to be able to help you. Please answer my questions above and I will be glad to look into it further.
So, what's so offensive about those two vowels that you had to drop them? Why are you putting type information in your variable names? Not even the folk at Microsoft recommend that convention anymore, finally realizing that it has no upside and plenty of negatives.
As far as the question, you should post precisely what the error is.

I wasn't receiving a error message per se. It was one of the non-descript red underline the syntax. I have been able to get the stringname.length() == 3 to work. BTW: I have no ill-will against vowels.

If you are using NetBeans or a similar IDE, the red underline means there is a syntax error. You can see the error message by moving your mouse over the line and leaving it there for a few seconds. You may need to move the mouse to the "gutter" on the left where the line numbers appear (at least in NetBeans). You can also see the error message by compiling. This later method is desirable if you need to copy and paste the message here for our help.
