Labelling Parcels

Good Afternoon,

I need help with labeling the Property Parcels.

For the Parcel shapefile, I have two columns in the attributes table, NAME and OWNER_NAME. I am labeling the parcels using the NAME field, however, there are cases where the NAME field is empty but there is a record in the OWNER_NAME field. Now I could simply select the empty fields and then using the field calculator could populate the NAME field.

However, I dont want to do this. I want to use an expression where I could label the parcels using NAME field and if the NAME field is empty then the OWNER_NAME field would be used to label the parcels. How do I do this using either python or VB?

Thank you in advance.
