I need to change the Alexa Wake Word

We are new to the “Alexa” world - except for our 24 year old daughter Alexa.  

We have multiple Sonos speakers, with our newest being the Sonos Move with Alexa enabled.  We thought that we could change the wake word for Alexa on any device.  While I love the name “Alexa”, that is our daughter’s name and we really need to change the wake word to “Echo”.  Either that or we need to change our daughter’s name :). 

Sonos, please help - enable changing the wake word on Sonos speakers.

With thanks,

I think it will be easier to change your daughters name! :)
