    Record on his name

    "He wants to get some records/make some records on his name". Is it correct?

    No. Your meaning is unclear.

    "The person wants to creat a world record".

    Note the correct spelling of "create".

    As MatthewWai said, the phrase is "to set a world record" so your full sentence would be "He wants to set some [new] world records."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Record on his name

    I take it to mean make music 'in his name', as in under his own (stage)name.

    Re: Record on his name

    How does world record come into the picture?
    Record in the music industry is obsolete these days.
    How about: he wants to have his accomplishments acknowledged.

    Re: Record on his name

    I agree with you. In addition, the OP clarified his meaning, making "music" an impossible context.

    Re: Record on his name

    The ending is not needed, but if you use it, it should probably be "in his name'.
