How to Change Amazon Alexa's Name on Your Devices

Great news for all you poor souls out there named Alexa!

There's a way to change your Amazon device so she no longer wakes up and responds to her original name.

Now while you can't choose a totally original new name for your device you can change it to respond to “Amazon,” “Echo,” or “Computer.” 

Here's how!

  • Open the Alexa app on your phone.
  • Tap the home page button on the bottom-left. It looks like three rectangles stacked together.
  • Select the menu button on the top-left of the page.
  • Choose settings.
  • Pick “Device Settings.”
  • Choose the Echo that you want to modify.
  • Tap “Wake Word.”
