Cookie name(s) / Google Analytics cookies

In the plugin settings, under 'Cookie Name' we need to set the actual name of the cookie we see in the browser console?

When we add Google Analytics to the cookie definitions we now use '_ga' under Cookie Name. This does seem to work because it sops the cookie and then after consent it is set OK.

But we see more GA cookies after consent:
_gat_gtag_UA_77955789_1
_gid
DSID (doubleclik.net)
IDE (doubleclik.net)

If we want to mention these cookies. do we add them to the 'Cookie Name' colums? Or will this stop this cookie definition from working? Maybe we could add the cookie names to the description to inform the user about what cookies might be set by Google?

The "Cookie Name" field is more of a nice user display. If there are a lot of cookies set by a 3rd party, the display would get messy - but you are able to add as much there as you want.

Right now, the only bit that isn't informational is the access level. The rest is for the benefit of the user choosing consent.

I'm creating another field to handle the actual cookie names (with regex for the complex ones)
