concatenation is not the python way to build strings
double quotes can be included in single quoted strings ( & vice Versa)
try using the string formatting options, something like


print 'ma "{}" display name "{}" Given Name "{}" sn "{}" cn "{}"'.format
((mail,name2.title(),name.title(),lastname.title(),name.title()))
