Invocation name pronunciation and skill language


I am testing a skill and I have a problem with invocation name. I'd like to use a single word, which also is the brand name of my company (think something like in Alexa docs examples: Uber, Dominos, etc.) which also is an English portmanteau.

The problem is that I am developing my skill in Italian, and the invocation name is in English and:

- People may pronounce the name correctly in English or also try incorrectly to speak it as an italian word, with a different (incorrect) pronunciation.

- Alexa seems to have some trouble understanding the pronounced name since it probably expects the invocation name to be Italian, while the expected pronunciation is English.

Is there any way to use SSML for the invocation name? Any suggestions on how to work around this?
