iOS Object-Oriented Swift Complex Data Structures Adding Instance Methods

I'm not sure why I can't pass this challenge.

Here is my code:

struct Person { let firstName: String let secondName: String

func fullName(name1: String, name2: String) -> String {
    let completeName = firstName + " " + secondName
    return completeName
}

}

structs.swift
struct Person {
    let firstName: String
    let secondName: String

    func fullName(firstName, secondName) -> String {
        var completeName = firstName + " " + secondName
        return completeName
    }
}

Hi Nigel,

You've been asked to create a method with the following signature: fullName() but you've created a method with this signature: fullName(firstName, secondName)

You've also changed the name of one of the Struct's properties: you've replaced lastName with secondName. This will break any backend code that's creating instances of this Struct.

Cheers

Alex
