I'm really looking forward to implementing Vera Concierge, but not having to say it! 

My suggestion is for a 2-word personal name that rolls off the tongue easily and isn't language-specific.    Something easy for kids and spouses to remember and say.   It could even be someone identified as using an invisible Force to control things.  ;) 

OK Google, ask Obi Wan to raise the window blinds. 

I'm not a Stars Wars fanatic, but I could easily get used to referring to my Vera HA system with a personal name such as this.   It sure works for the Alexa crowd.

I also thought of taking the abbreviation for "command and control" (C2) to form an automaton name such as C2-D2, C2-PO, or C2-HAL.    (Command and Control Home Automation Listener)   But since it sounds like "See To How" it's probably not a good invocation phrase.   Obi Wan sounds like nothing else and seems to be very easily pronounced and recognized.

I like that ... I tried to stay away from home ... because they are not always used in you home.
