Belarus SIG #Belarus Elinson or Elinski #belarus

I recently received the translation of Mogilev Marriage Records. Among the
listings is the marriage of Zusia Elinski in 1903. I know that this is my
grandfather as his first name, father's name and his wife's name match my
information. He came to the US as Zusha Elinson. His uncle Yankel who is also
listed in the Marriage Records is recorded as Yankel Elinson. I understand that
Elinson and Elinski are related patronymics. Are they interchangeable? Might
someone be Elinson in Yiddish and Elinski in Russian?
