Creating a variable named "name" yet with no input()?

The quiz is asking me to create a variable under the name "name." I do this using name = input("Maylon") as I was instructed to do in the video, but the answer engine still marks it wrong.

Welcome to Treehouse!

It sounds like you are on Task 1 of the Ins & Outs Challenge, which states:

Create a variable named name with your name in it.

In Python that would look like name="Your Name Here"

For this challenge there is not requirement to accept input.

Happy coding,
