    I recently came across this feature of Cortana... She can save nick names for people... So when I asked call my mom she asked me which one of my contacts was that and once I guided her to that she just saved it... So when ever I say call my mom she calls her even though her name is saved as her full name on the phone.. I did the same for all my family and my pals.. It can be done from the peoples hub as well.. Cool feature.. So I can just say call Sandy and she calls my best friend... I did not have to change his name.. She remembered it...

    Yep, I did this as well, and noticed that you can reach those nicknames from the people hub. You can add several nicknames per person!

    As a test, I set all three of my brothers to have "Brother" as a nickname, and then asked her "Cortana, send a text to my brother" and she then prompted me as to which one. Kinda cool.
