With ancestry they have “also known as” and you can put as many names as you want. Most of my relatives did not change their names but in Germany evidently were known by many names. One document will have one nickname, another another nickname and it’s hard to tell which name was the “real” one. I never know which name to list as their primary name, but I put all the others in “also known as.”
