Customize wake word
Allow user to customize wake word of their own choosing or at least expand choices greatly.

I would love for additional wake words to be available. I would like to suggest Dot or Dottie for dot devices. However, the ability to make custom wake words would be phenomenal. Between ads and other streaming items, Alexa and Echo are triggered too much. I use computer and Amazon too much in general conversation. Thank you for your consideration.

I understand this is probably a local device-side config that could have a significant impact, since it's literally the gateway to using an Echo, but I really think you should allow some method for fetching from a much larger list of Wake words. Obviously, Janet should be one of the options ;-)

having 9 echo dots in a home, you need more wake names than the provided 4
This would be very useful! 4 pre-chosen command words aren't enough

Please provide more wake word choices. Idealy, it would be nice to be able to use a custom wake word...
Sometimes I am half way between 2 Echo devices and they both answer to the wake work at the same time.
Popular wake words might include Hal, Jarvis, Skynet, Matrix, Kitt, Data, Rosey, Tron, Johnny 5, Wall-E, Optimus, etc.
How about "Prime"?
Having a free for all here could result in more false positives. I’m happy with the current selection
