They properly match the covers but the name is different on each edition. Is this set up properly?

I ask because I don't know how to handle msg 2. Another author with the same name and the same variations.

It's proper to go with the longer version so if someone searches for the shorter they'll still find the author? Just looking for a rule to follow.
