Ah. I had the same problem with my (non-Siri) voice control in my car when I switch the language to Spanish. It didn’t understand any of my contacts, even if they had a Spanish-ish name.
I also switched my iOS and Mac OS devices to Spanish and this worked out very well. On iOS you can change the language you see to Spanish and keep the Maps app spoken directions to Spanish but then still use an English auto-correction and Siri. I found this to be a very helpful.
I hope for all our sake Siri gets considerably more intelligent in the near future.
