Getting an error message to display if user forgets to rename worksheet

I'm trying to make a macro that creates a new worksheet, based on a template sheet ("Default" below) and then hides that template sheet. The problem occurs if the user forgets to rename the new worksheet (and leaves it titled as "Insert Client Name") and then tries to rerun the macro.

How would I be able to get an error message to display if this occurs?

Sub CreateNewClient()


Sheets("Default").Visible = True
Sheets("Default").Select
Sheets("Default").Copy Before:=Sheets(2)
Sheets("Default (2)").Select
Sheets("Default (2)").Name = Insert Client Name"


Sheets("Default").Select
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.Visible = False
Sheets("Insert Client Name").Select


End Sub

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

Why don't you force the user to enter the client name using an inputbox, using a Do Until loop that tests for Sheets("Default (2)).Name <> "Insert Client Name"?
