How to Add a Name Into A Crocheted Blanket

I'm halfway done making a good sized granny square blanket and I was wondering if anyone knew how to go about adding a name to it.  Would I just chain a super long chain and try to form the letters I need?  I want a cursive style look to it.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

I did this a while ago, and without knowing how to do it, I just made a long chain, as you suggested, spelled out the letters in large cursive, and then tacked them down. Either that or I threaded it through the crochet that was already existing. . . I can't remember now!
