Python Regular Expressions in Python Introduction to Regular Expressions Name Groups

Output marked wrong, but output looks correct in IDE. Am I missing specific group names?

The assignment in my code appears to work in my IDE (I get the correct output values), but I am getting marked incorrect for some reason. This is labeled as "named groups", but the expected names are not made clear. Do I need the correct names for the groups, or is there some other issue that I am not seeing?

names = re.match('''
    (?P<first>\w+,){1} # Last name
    (?P<last>\s\w+)
''', string, re.X)
names.py
import re

string = 'Perotto, Pier Giorgio'

names = re.match('''
    (?P<first>\w+,){1} # Last name
    (?P<last>\s\w+)
''', string, re.X)
