Code for clicking a button and get the current user in sharepoint in alert message box

<input type='button' id='id1' value='Get User Name' onclick="GetLoggedInUserName();"/>

<script type="text/javascript">
function GetLoggedInUserName()
var context = new SP.ClientContext.get_current();
this.website = context.get_web();
this.currentUser = website.get_currentUser();
context.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(this, this.onQuerySucceeded), Function.createDelegate(this, this.onQueryFailed));

function onQuerySucceeded(sender, args)

function onQueryFailed(sender, args)
alert('request failed ' + args.get_message() + '\n'+ args.get_stackTrace());

How can we do it on load.
