Main, Maine or Mayne?

On 25 Mar 1878 my great grandparents witnessed a marriage in Priddy, Somerset. The groom's name is recorded as James MAIN, his father as James MAINE and my g.grandmother as Hester MAYNE. I have no reason at present to believe that these are different families, so it goes to show just how careless people were in completing these registers. (Source: FreeREG)
(Update - the groom is Hester's brother)
