class Name

  name = Name.new #this will have to come out of the class
#that is the main purpose of instantiating, accessing a class variables from outside the class
#that too you are missing 2 things in it, one is the brace, and the title argument

  def initialize(title)
    @title = title
  end 
  def first_name
    "Metal"
  end

  def last_name
