get_context_data '''What am I missing?''' [SOLVED]

I think I might have the key set incorrectly but I am not sure. Thanks for the help!!

myproject/urls.py
from django.conf.urls import url, include

from . import views

urlpatterns = [
    url(r'^$', views.WelcomeView.as_view()),
    url(r'^name/$', views.NameView.as_view()),
]
myproject/views.py
from django.http import HttpResponse
from django.views.generic import View, TemplateView


class WelcomeView(View):
    def get(self, request):
        return HttpResponse("Treehouse!")


class NameView(TemplateView):
    template_name = "name.html"

    def get_context_data(self, **kwargs)
        context = super().get_context_data(**kwargs)
        context['name'] = 'Bryon'
        return context

[MOD: marked post as SOLVED]

Figured it out.

I needed the context_object_name = 'name' under the NameView

and

I overlooked a missing semicolon on the get_context_data method.

I have the same issue.
