Im not sure why this is incorrect

I'm supposed to put the name variable in the h1 tag form. I used the double curly braces like the previous video showed but it won't work

flask_app.py
from flask import Flask
from flask import render_template

app = Flask(__name__)


@app.route('/hello/<name>')
def hello(name="Treehouse"):
    name = name
    return render_template('hello.html')
templates/hello.html
<!doctype html>
<html>
<head><title>Hello!</title></head>
<body>
<h1>Howdy {{name}}!</h1>
</body>
</html>

The HTML change is OK. But the rest of the instructions said to "Pass the name argument to the template."

Putting "name=name" on a line by itself doesn't do anything, but putting it as the 2nd argument to render_template would be a way to pass the name to the template.
