Variants of a surname complicate reports that summarize family lines. But there are features to include variants (and statistical outliers) in with the larger grouping.
== How do I group similar surnames? ==
But I have been configuring certain names to take advantage of the capability.
{{man tip|1=Accessing the Name Editor|2=Names are an [[Gramps_Glossary#attribute|Attribute]] of a [[Gramps_Glossary#person|Person]]. The advanced features are accessed from the [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_1#Names|Names tab]] while editing a Person.
*Select a Person & press {{Man key press|CTRL|Enter}} (or double-click) to open the {{man label|[[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_1#Edit_Person_dialog|Edit Person]]}} dialog.
*Select the Names tab, select a Name & press {{Man key press|CTRL|Enter}} (or double-click) to open the {{man label|[[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_3#Name_Editor|Name Editor]]}} dialog.}}
== Leveraging the '''Group As''' feature ==
[[File:NameEditor-dialog-example-50.png|thumb|450px|right|Fig. {{#var:chapter}}.{{#vardefineecho:figure|{{#expr:{{#var:figure}}+1}}}} Name Editor - Dialog - example]]
In the reports that I use most when sharing with relatives (the [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Reports_-_part_7#Narrated_Web_Site|Narrated]] and [[DynamicWeb_report|Dynamic Web]]), navigation by Surname or Individuals utilizes this grouping and all the Clark and Clarke individuals are grouped together. But the Surname heading was just the one name used in the grouping, “Clark”.
