    Anyone else dislike the name. I'm thinking a one syllable word would be better. I think that this also would not be an option to change as it might need a software rewrite. I would like to know what you think.

    I find it just right. In normal conversation I don't use the word/name Cortana, so there is none to very minimal chance she'll be "eavesdropping" accidentally on me.
