Baby Thinks Her Name is 'Alexa' After Hearing Parents Talk to Amazon Echo
The Amazon Echo Dot responds to the name Alexa, which has made it very troubling for the parents to get their daughter to respond to her own name.
A hilarious video shared online by mother, Charlotte Moultrie, 28, of her 11-month-old baby responding only to the name "Alexa" instead of her own birth name, Emily, has gone viral.
Emily appears to completely ignore her own name when her parents, Charlotte and Andy, from Douglas, Isle of Man, call on her. The couple says that they purchased the Amazon Echo Dot device, which is pre-programmed to respond to "Alexa," when Emily was only five-months-old and have been using it ever since.
In the video you can hear Charlotte ask, "Emily? Emily..?" without any response from her child. Only when she says "Alexa?" does the little girl respond. "No, your nameís Emily, not Alexa!" She continued, "Oh my god, what am I going to do?"
In an interview with Story Tender, the parents shared, "Every time you shout her name, she ignores you and then I say Alexa and she looks at me. I was so worried she thought her name was Alexa when it first happened!"
"She does it all the time now; if she's playing in her room or crawling away we canít get her attention unless we shout Alexa," she continued...
