How to handle Outlook Contacts who have multiple Names

We have many contacts who have multiple names, e.g., (1) women who, having
been married several times, sometimes use their "maiden" surname, and
sometimes use their first or second husband's surname; (2) people who
sometimes use their formal name, and sometimes use a nickname [e.g., Jack
Kennedy]; (3) people who live in Israel, who sometimes use their "English"
names [e.g., Jeffrey Goldberg], but also use entirely different names in
Hebrew [e.g., Yakov Ben-Tzion].

Is it possible to create (what I'll call) "Shortcuts" in Outlook (for a
particular contact), each of which would display one of the contact's various
names, and clicking on any of them would open the single contact record for
that person?

If anyone has any suggestions where I could find a solution to this problem,
I'd appreciate it very much.

You could make multiple contacts for a person and link them using the
contact linking feature. (I'd probably just put the names in Notes.)
