When merging, does it matter if the capitaliztion of a name is different?  Example:  Fitzwarin-10 and FitzWarin-11. As the spelling is the same except for the capital letter, are they indexed the same?  Also, what about names with accents?

Capitalisation and accents both matter. So, find the profiles with the correct spelling, capitalisation, and accents, and then the lowest number out of those.
