macOS High Sierra

Set up your contact card

Contacts automatically creates a contact card for you—called your me card—when you set up your Mac. Information on your card, such as your name, email address, or picture (if you add one), can be used in other apps, such as Mail or Safari. If you add a nickname to your card, Siri uses your nickname instead of your first name.
