Default Phone contacts not showing in 4.4

Hey guys. Searches didn't bring up anything I could use. When I flash any 4.4 aosp rom (I don't use sense) most of my phone contacts don't show under hangouts or the contacts app. So if I want to send a text to "mom" I have type in the phone number and oddly enough the name "mom " will appear at the top of the new thread. I tried searching if I need to merge my contacts with Google plus and such. I honestly have no idea what is the problem. Not a bad gapps flash, made sure if that. Help!
