How can I add custom mode in Alexa smart home skill

I am implementing smart home skill in which user will change mode. I found Alexa supported few inbuild modes and for user-defined mode they have CUSTOM mode mechanism. Over the documentation they mention below JSON:

"payload": {
      "thermostatMode": {
        "value": "CUSTOM",
        "customName": "[A custom name registered with Alexa Smart Home]"
      }
    }

Question: From where I can register custom name of mode with Alexa smart home
