The subjectName is a structured text field, and not an arbitrary line of characters.  The string "NAME" would not be of the right form, which is what you are being told.

The form to use is a distinguishedName, like cn=NAME or uid=testtest_2005,dc=ukr,dc=net -- I think this may also clear up questions about quotes.
