This is part of the new VoIP infrastructure for Google Voice.  It's not "CNAM" in the traditional sense; it is not accessing one of the national telco industry LIDB data bases; it is simply matching inbound telephone call numbers with records in your Google Contacts, as you observed.  But hey, it's better than nothing!

Agreed.  Although in a couple of cases that meant I needed to edit the names to be slightly more generically descriptive (and less, um, pointed).

I actually prefer that I can be in charge as to what is displayed for a number on my phone (without having to deal with (e.g. add) all those numbers/contacts on the phone itself, using some cumbersome interface). Ofcourse it would be nice if no match exists in my contacts a "regular telco" CNAM lookup was done/sent - which is actually something that seems to be done by Google, since the Hangouts app (receiving the same call) does (or at least it used to) display such info (even when dialing out via it!).
