Hello. My husband informed me tonight that a colleague asked him why my husband shows up on his iPhone as "insert funny nickname here." As a backstory, when my husband got his iphone 5 a year ago, my daughter and I made his Siri nickname something silly. It stayed on there until about a month ago when he asked us to change it to just his name. We did and I made sure that Siri was now calling him by his first name. I was totally shocked when my husband came home tonight and told me that this colleague has the old funny Siri name for my husband showing up on his phone. I have since completely deleted my husband's contact on his iphone and readded it. I also told went in to Siri and selected the newly entered contact for my husband. This funny nickname isn't appearing anywhere. I even sent a friend of mine a text from my husband's phone and his contact information to make sure that nothing looked "funny." She told me there is no reference to this nickname that we had previously put on his phone in either the text or the contact. My husband is concerned that someone else might also be seeing this "nickname" in their contacts as well. First, how would a Siri nickname even ever get into someone else's contacts anyway and second, how can we make sure it is really not going to be seen by anyone else in the future? Any suggestions or information is appreciated. I have scoured the internet looking for an explanation and can find none. Thanks!
