First question: What version of Python are you writing this for?
Version 2.x has slightly different rules than version 3.x

Define "working." Do you mean you get a syntax error when you try to
run it? If so, then post the full traceback, which will point to the
location of the error, (or sometimes the next line or two).

If this is Python 2.x, then you want to derive from object, not just
make a standalone class.

Have you read the Python tutorial page at:
That's assuming you're writing for Python 2.7.
python doesn't have instance variables, they're called instance data
attributes. Have you defined name as an instance attribute, or a class

Without a colon, this is a syntax error.
And without a body, it's another syntax error.

Where is the parameter to hold the new name?
This references the instance attribute, but doesn't modify it.

No parens, no parameters, no colon.
