Contacts ok on iPhone but just phone numbers on Messages on Mac Pro

Cave Man

Not sure what's going on. I have all of these people in my contacts. Most of them also use iPhones. On my iPhone, they all show up with their real names but on my Mac Pro, some of them show up only as phone numbers. I have tried logging out of the Messenger App, quitting it, then launching it again and re-logging in, but that did not solve the problem. Any ideas how to fix this?

Mac Pro = 10.14.6
iPhone 6 = current iOS 12

In any case the contacts would need to be in specific cloud account(s) that are logged in and turned on in both devices…and definitely not in the group "On my Mac" or "On my iPhone".
