Need to change Alexa alias

Originally set up area called Kitchen Floods and now I’m trying to simplify the callout in Alexa but changing the alias within the switches that control to just kitchen has no effect as Alexa only recognizes Kitchen Floods. What am I missing here?

Because aliases don’t work for Alexa (yet?) (Amazon’s side) you’ll have to manually change the device names in Alexa after you have them set the way you want in HA.

Wouldn’t that be dependent on how Alexa and your switch talk ? Are you using a custom connection? Or Nabu Casa?

Thank you I’ll look into that
