    Hi:

    Is there any way to add an alias to my contacts?

    I mean, I'd like to call "Uncle Sylvie" and see that name in my contacts, even though I also want to specify her name and her family name within her contact card.

    I don't want to see the complete name of my mother when I call her, but saying that her name is "Mum" is very weird!

    Thanks.

    Just put the "alias" in the contact's "Nickname" field. This is also what Siri uses when you ask about someone.

    Also, in your contact record add your relationships.
