Ken's already produced an XSLT 1.0 answer. For interest, possible XSLT
2.0 solutions would be:

Using the distinct-values() function:

  <xsl:value-of select="distinct-values(.//element-name/@name)"
                separator=", " />

If you wanted to do something further with the element-name elements,
the xsl:for-each-group element would be more use:

  <xsl:for-each-group select=".//element-name"
    <xsl:value-of select="@name" />
    <xsl:if test="position() != last()">, </xsl:if>

Although you could just use xsl:for-each with distinct-values() if you

  <xsl:for-each select="distinct-values(.//element-name/@name)">
    <xsl:value-of select="." />
    <xsl:if test="position() != last()">, </xsl:if>
