Remove the initialize method where you are setting @name and then add the following after the Name class.

name = Name.new

Based on walking through the challenge I'm guessing you either misread or confused initializing with instantiating a new Name object. It's asking you to instantiate a new Name instance as opposed to creating an initialize method for name.

I still don't understand what it's asking me to do
