How to get a list of all the subfolders with a specific name e.g. all the folders which their name contains 'NAME'

I know:

find . | grep *NAME*

but this won't give me a unique list (if the folder has subfolders it gets listed multiple times)


What about

find . -type d -name "*name*"

(or use -iname if you want a case insensitive match)
