Did it say something like this?

psql: FATAL 1:  Database "shiva" does not exist in the system catalog.

By default psql looks for a database named the same as your user ID.

If you want to use a database by a different name, then say
"psql different_name"

To get a list of what databases you have, use "psql -l"

To create a new database use the createdb command.
