You can just use:

<xsl:apply-templates select="*[name() = $Node_Name]" />


> <xsl:apply-templates select="$Node_Name" />

As an example the following stylesheet:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
    <xsl:template match="/">
        <xsl:variable name="test" select="'x'"/>
        <xsl:apply-templates select="//*[name()=$test]"/>
    <xsl:template match="x">Got x!</xsl:template>

applied on

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

will give you

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
        Got x!

        Got x!
