Genealogy Hebrew Transliteration Questions #names #translation #records

Some very kind people in the group recently helped me translate my ancestors' names from Hebrew to English. Moving forward when doing research for my family tree, does it make sense to look up each variation of how my ancestors' names are spelled? Any advice would be much appreciated

I have included some specific examples below showing the spelling differences I have seen and photos of the actual headstones for reference.

Thanks for your help!!
