Simcha and Shmarya are not variants of the same name.
That said, one can easily misread Simcha as Schmarya -- see this image:




All it takes is for the stonecutter (or the reader) to have missed a bit at where the red arrow is pointing .  The first word is Simcha the second is Shmarya. Move the second character for the left a bit to the right, make it a bit too long, and Shmarya looks like Simcha.
