    I have an array of names and I want to push only the different names to the namesArray. So this code should output only name-3, name-4, and name-5

    var names = ["name-1","name-1","name-1","name-1","name-2","name-2","name-3","name-4","name-5","name-6","name-6"];
    var namesArray = [];
    for(var i = 0; i < names.length; i++){
    product_name = names[i];
    product_name_compare = names[i-1];
        if (product_name != product_name_compare){

    This is the output: [ 'name-1', 'name-2', 'name-3', 'name-4', 'name-5', 'name-6' ]

    Desired output is ['name-3', 'name-4', 'name-5']
