    So when I say "OK Google Now" "send text to my wife's name" Google Now comes back and says "contact not found" ..... as if the contact doesn't exist.

    But the funny part is that is SPELLED HER NAME CORRECTLY (she has an unusual spelling of her first name) when it told me that there was no contact for her.

    FYI -- a while back (pre-Moto X) I added a phonetic spelling of her name to her contact so that I could more easily use Google Now.

    Any ideas, tips or tricks? Yes -- her contact does exist.

    Thanks...

    Same here. i ask it to search for someone's name that's there and it brings up the most random people and refusing to find the name. lol.

    I actually tried changing her phonetic name to "my wife" as in "send text to my wife" ... it brought up lots of other contacts but not hers.

    Do you put the codename as the contact name, the phonetic name or both?

    I have her listed as wifey, and works well for me, "Send text to wifey", works like a charm !!
