Older versions of my surname, Poncy were spelled Ponsi. A few ancestors used them interchangeably. Could you please list them as "related names?"  This would help immensely for people doing genealogical research on my family.

Thank you.

This thread from August seems to indicate that it is indeed possible. Read the answer by Jamie Nelson:

We actually got an updated version of the variant names database (for both first and last names) a week or so ago.

I do have a list of name variants that people have suggested, and I'll add Poncy/Ponsi.
Thank you, Jamie.
