My phone is driving me nuts filter: How can I search by nickname on my HTC One S Android phone?

I love my new HTC One S, except for its volume button which is positioned so it gets accidentally pressed all the bloody time and also turns the phone off silent, which is awkward in meetings. But that's not what I'm asking about.
In the HTC contacts list you can enter a name and you can enter a nickname. So I laboriously entered all my phone numbers from a wide range of electronic and paper sources, as well as the nicknames I actually know people by. But it looks like you can't search by nickname at all, meaning Aunty Popo won't get her Eid phone call this year unless I magically remember her actual name which isn't Aunty or Popo.
Are there any workarounds? Apps I can install? A better contact sorting app to replace this one? Or must I simply suck it up as the rest of the internet seems to suggest?
