    Try "text my wife" and then see if she asks "who's your wife?"

    I tried this a couple nights ago. I asked Cortana to "call my dad".. And she asked "who's your dad?", so I replied with his name, who is most certainly on my contact list, and she couldn't find him! Very frustrating... I gave up. :(

    It's one of two things; inner circle (hamburger icon on the top right of the Cortana screen) or Facebook.

    I don't remember which.

    Set "Cortana" nicknames for them.

    -Go to people hub.
    -Click on contact you wish to set nickname.
    -on the right side of that contacts "name" there will be a "+" (plus) sign.
    -Click it, scroll down and you will see add Cortana nickname

    You can set regular nicknames under that menu too.
