>>> from unittest import mock
>>> def b():
...   print("hello")
>>> q = mock.create_autospec(b, name="a")
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/home/kdas/code/python/cpython3/Lib/unittest/", line 2092, in create_autospec
    name=_name, **_kwargs)
TypeError: type object got multiple values for keyword argument 'name'

The issue was originally reported on mock bug tracker. I am working on a patch for the same.

Fix for the issue with test case. We are checking name in keyword arguments, if found replace _name with it and delete it from keyword arguments.

You can use kwargs.pop instead of the two step fetch and delete. 

For the test, could you add an assert that the name is used. Can you add an extra underscore to the method name, to make it: test_create_autospec_with_name

Looks good to me, but please change qobj and add a NEWS entry.
