This drives me NUTS.

Husband and I deliberately say “Her” if we’re discussing our Echo — otherwise she hears us, can’t understand what we’re asking her to do(since we’re not asking anything at all), and makes that stupid “duh-dunk” noise at us.

She’s great for turning the Hue lights on and off, but she also had a couple of days where she was hearing “Alexa, turn Rachel’s lamp off” as “turn RachAel’s lamp off” and thinking(rightly so) that there was no such device. I’m still not sure how Rachel/Rachael pronunciation is meant to differ?
