"What is the name of your mother?" should also be accepted.

I understand that idiomatically this translates to 'what is your mother's name', that's how we say it in english. But the literal translation is 'how is your mother called?' That should also be accepted. 'What is your mother's name' would be 'Cual es el nombre de su madre?'

I put "how is your mother called" and got it wrong.
