TMG allows virtually unlimited alternate names. Your Hank sounds like a
Name-Nick, the rest sound like Name-Var, there also is built in Name-Chg,
Name-Baptm, and Name-Marr. If you have some other type of variation you can
create it. I tend to enter every major variation I find. I might not enter
all the minor spelling variations like you have in #3, particularly if this
was before spelling was standardized.
