AMAZON.FirstName - Amazon Lex


Commonly used first names. This slot type recognizes both formal names and informal nicknames. The name sent to your intent is the value sent by the user. Amazon Lex V2 doesn't convert from the nick name to the formal name.

For first names that sound alike but are spelled differently, Amazon Lex V2 sends your intent a single common form.

The AMAZON.FirstName slot type supports styled input. You can use the spell-by-letter and spell-by-word styles to help your customers enter names. For more information, see Using spelling styles to capture slot values.
