It seems Wikitree doesn't do well picking up variations of Quebecois names.  Perhaps I am mistaken so anyone with suggestions please help me out....when I create a profile , if the family name isn't spelled exactly like another already in existence on Wikitree, it isn't picked up...For example I created Alexis Bissonnette (Bissonnette-119) searched for another individual and couldn't found one. So I created Alexis and just a few moments later, an Alexis Bissonette (Bissonette-26) appears. Bissonnette and Bissonette......Now I am waiting for the Bissonette-26 profile manager/trusted person to notice and take action so these two can be merged but is seems that manager is on a holiday.           What do I do??? Just wait?

Names, dit names, Anglicized names, Marie and Joseph names are every FC First name!!! includingin mine (Mary Elizabeth). My family just doesn't use the first name as the name someone is called.

I have read through the G2G topics about FC names am am still confused.

And then today I added an Ancestor, Alexis BISSONNETTE, and searched for duplicates even though WIKItree told me there were none.  So I created the profile and sure enough his wife Marie Genevieve Senecal was there and married to Alexis BissoNette (only 1 "n").  So If I put all PRDH  and Drouin spellings for the family name will it pick up the duplicates quickly before I create the new individual??  e.g Martin Delmace/Delmasse/Delmas   or another Desmarais/Marais/Marat???? the PRDH has then spelled as they appeared in the repetoire.

My mother's was know by her 'middle' name; but, I never knew that until I started researching my ancestry! My father also was know by his 'middle' name. Their given names were the same as their father and mother and their grandfathers and great grandfathers!
