This resulted in the problem of one person's name being recorded under several different variations, creating the illusion of more than one person. Among the many spelling variations of the surname Whaling that are preserved in archival documents are Phelan, O'Phelan, Whelan, O'Failin, Phalen, Phalon, Phaelan and many more.
