      I probably don't have the answer you seek, but can give you some clues.

      In this region, there is probably no one "correct" spelling. Each
      language may have rendered the spelling of the surname differently.
      Consequentially, you may have several "correct" spellings.

      It would be helpful to know the source and time period of each of the
      surname variants. Were the rendered in folklore, written in a document
      (which one?) or some other means? What was their language and religion?
      Did you believe them to be ethnic Slovak, Czech, Ukraine, Magyar, Rusyn,
      or another? What year did the subject(s) immigrate?
