Device Name Length

What is the maximum (recommended) length a Device Name can be? In the application we are interfacing with, the device names can be quite lengthy. Does Alexa impose a limit?

Apologies in advance if this has been asked a hundred times.

It has not! Is this for implementing your own smarthome skill or looking through the companion app?

It is for developing my own. I'm referring to the device names an end user will use to, for example, turn on/off a light.

What's the reason you need to know? I'll look into it for you but having some context on why this matters for you would be helfpul.
