I don't get it. Since when are "command" and "contact" reserved words
I suspect a conflict not with the C++ language, but with something else
in the OP's compilation environment.
While "command" -> "cmd" is a common substitution in programs, I strongly
dislike the "contact" -> "cntct" transformation. It's far less readable.
Vowels are in the language for a reason.
