Perhaps they don't have access to a 'male' voice, but doesn't it add confusion to have a female voice saying 'obrigado'?

For "pela", the only hints that are given are "peels" "skin" and "fleece".

Isn't "para" the word for "for" and "pela" is the world for "by"?

These prepositions sometimes have the same meaning in English. “Para” indicates direction and can vary in gender (“para o”/”para a”) and in number (“para os”/”para as”). “Para” also means “to”, “for” and in “order to”. “Por” is often used in idiomatic expressions with some verbs, as the agent of the passive voice or even to indicate time. In this case, its use is optional and it is normally omitted. “Por” can also vary in gender (“pelo”/”pela”) and in number (“pelos”/”pelas”).
