    this was FOUR years ago, and we still can't give a device multiple friendly names?

    I have a lamp, that by creating multiple devices in my discovery response and some fancy footwork in my skill is called -

    Lounge lamp
    living room lamp
    front room lamp
    lounge light
    living room light
    front room light
    but having done similar with dozens of devices, my device list in the Alexa app has become a total mess and I'm in danger of hitting the 300 device limit.

    it's a much better user experience to be able to use the name for something that you're used to rather than having to remember the one designated name, so I'm shocked this is still not possible

    why narrow it down to device type. if alexa knows where you are and you have a "train" grouped with your echo device, you should be able to say "alexa turn on the train" rather than "turn on the office train" (or whatever)
