why it's returns error ???

it's tell me about error in the "last name" group , i checked it and i don't understand the problem. the question is : Create a variable names that is an re.match() against string. The pattern should provide two groups, one for a last name match and one for a first name match. The name parts are separated by a comma and a space. the error is : Bummer! error: bad character in group name 'last name' at position 25 (line 3, column 5)

import re

string = 'Perotto, Pier Giorgio'
(?P<last name>\b[\w]+\s[\w]+)
