Soundex Phonetic token filter

I'm trying to build tokens for similar sounding names.
For eg: if I have "Michael" saved as a name
Can I have "Mike" as one of the tokens for searching?

I don't think that Michael sounds like Mike.

To me it's more a synonym.

So is there anything to handle synonyms?

and can you give me an example of what soundex plugin does in Elasticsearch?
