i added a custom table to the wordpress database with a list of names and a description. I wrote a custom function to display all the names in a table. Now i want to have an extra page for every name where you can see the persons description after clicking on the persons name. Any hints? Thanks!

You probably don't need a custom table. Read the top answer to this question which recommends using Custom Post Types.

As for displaying the data, I'd recommend you investigate Custom Page Templates. Then you can create a page that loads your data however you'd like.
