    Anonymous Object Newbie Query

    Hi there

    I'm starting to learn C# and am trying to understand how Anonymous Objects work. The code below will not compile because "Object does not contain a definition for Name". My understanding was that an anonymous classes were children of the object class. Since the compiler allowed me to type o=v, then o references the anonymous object v. Why can't I read its name then? I tried to cast v to object using
    (o = object) v
    but it made no difference...?

    static void Main(string[] args)
                var v = new {Name= "Nigel", Age = 50};
                object o;
                o = v;
    Thank you for your time!
