Did Microsoft silently implement nickname search?
I have created a user “Robert Dylan” and never used name “Bob”, but search understands that I’m looking for Robert Dylan when I’m searching for Bob or Bob Dylan or Bobby.

I know Microsoft claimed m365 search is backed by Turing technology – it understands you, answers your question but not just blindly display keyword occurences (announcement at Ignite Spring, more on Ignite Fall 2021)… So is that it?
But the same trick did not work with Dick for Richard or (of course) Syd for Roger Barrett:
