Hey, i need help with a code that would take a values from 2 columns, and show only 1 result if theres more than 1..

Table1
ID-Name
1-Name1
2-Name2

Table2
ID-Name
1-Name1
5-Name5

I want something like this:
SELECT name FROM Table1 OR Table2 WHERE id='1'

Also when it returns (Name1, Name1) result, i would want it to be just (Name1).

Can someone help me with this? ty.

SELECT
	COALESCE(a.id,b.id) AS id,
	COALESCE(a.Name, b.Name) AS NAME 
FROM
	Table1 a
	FULL JOIN Table2 b ON 
		a.id = b.id;
