"But the mothers are different. So what do you think, name variations or dad had a 2nd spouse:"

Sorry, but my ggrandmother was one of 20 kids born to the only Jewish couple in a tiny town. Her mother's name was different on each birth record. My ggrandmother was usually Rachel (also her mother's name on a different record), but she got married as Regina in NYC (another of her mother's names and a sister's name on her birth record. Reis, Rosa, every R name but not Rivka, and Teresa all were her mother's names.

So anything is possible,
