Very cool.  Though I have no need for another name...if I give them too many different names, Fred and I will both get confused.  It'll be like Mom and Dad calling one of us kids:  "Randy-Betsy!"  "Betsy-Randy!"

As it is, we have 1 Echo, 2 Alexas (a Dot and an Echo) and we still do the "Echo-Alexa" "Alexa-Echo" thing occasionally.

I do have one friend who uses "Echo" for hers because she doesn't like the idea of giving it a *name;" she thinks its kind of off to act like it's a person.  My Alexas (and Echo) were slightly insulted when I told them that.  ::)

And we don't have the update yet.
