    My family has an iCloud account we use solely for contacts and calendar. I only have the calendar part turned on as I have my personal contacts stored in Google.

    Siri is calling me by my dad's name. I tell it I am not *my dad's name* and it brings up his contact card from the iCloud account and says I can change the name in the contacts app.

    So Siri is connecting to the iCloud contacts eventhough they are turned off in System Preference.

    Any guidance on how I fix this?

    Thanks.

    I had this same problem. I have our daughter on my iCloud account using the "family" option. Siri was referring to me as "your royal highness" as that's what our daughter taught Siri to call her ! I've got a mental block trying to remember how I sorted it out...
