Interesting Siri issue on phonetics of a name...

So, I am new to having an iPhone 4S. My issue regards my wife's name when trying to call/message from Siri.

Her name is Lea, pronounced as "Leah." However, Siri can never find a "Leah" when I say her name. I have entered the phonetic pronunciation of Lea's name in my contacts as "Leah" but still Siri doesn't recognize that.

Any ideas? (other than just change her first name in my contacts to "Leah")
