Your code passes. Are you typing anything other than this?

name = " Angel "

You have two different examples.

In your first one:

Nomad = " Angel "
name = Angel

... the problem is that Nomad is not part of the challenge, and Angel without the quotes is a variable name but the variable was never created.

As Alexander pointed out, the second example should pass:

name = " Angel "

But, even though it passes, you would not normally include spaces inside the quotes with the name unless special circumstances require it.
