    Ok so here's the deal:

    To get Siri to be able to store family nick names (sister, brother, wife, father, etc..) you need to be syncing with iCloud. I currently house all my contacts out of Google and sync with Mac/iPhone.

    I was looking for options to get the above fixed:
    Option: disable Google sync for contacts in phone and sync with iCloud. Have Mac sync iCloud and Google...but when i went to turn the option on in the Mac, i got message staying Google needs to be disabled.

    So the only other option is to sync phone with both iCloud/Google but I believe this will cause duplicates as i read in other posts...

    So what am i left with? Do i loose here?

    Ok i have figured it out!

    So for those of you who still want to Sync with google. do the following:

    1. Open the contact manually
    2. edit the contact on your phone and scroll down to end where it states "Add field" and choose to add a nick name
    3. name the field Brother, Sister, Mother, etc... and save the changes.
    4. close out and back to main screen.
    5. Launch Siri and ask her to send a message to ""nick name" where it equals Brother, Sister, etc...
    6. It will she is going to send a message to "contact name" and ask if you want her to remember that contact as that nick name.
    7. agree and cancel the message request.

    You're down...moving forward every time u say nick name it will remember that contact and won't ask you again to confirm.
