According to the BBC, UK-based parents described how their daughter's name, Alexa, has resulted in harassment due to its link with Amazon's Alexa. Other parents have expressed their desire for Amazon to modify the name of their speaker. Massachusetts-based Lauren Johnson created the "Alexa is a Human" campaign because her daughter was "constantly tormented at school and camp because her name is Alexa," she wrote to Amazon.
