Although this website appeared (initially) to be all things about Geography, after reading the help section and despite it claiming its audience is wide I think my question is not on topic: am I correct in thinking the following question is off topic here?

I've seen 2 spellings of a place, which is correct for my given location?

The actual question is 2 fold:

Why is there Menorca and Minorca (which is correct in Menorca and UK?
Why is there Addaia and Addaya (a town in Menorca) (which is correct in Menorca and UK?

This site is about Geographic Information Systems and not general Geography so I think your question is off-topic here.

I think an answer to your question is that while there may be many incorrect spellings for the name of a location there may also be multiple correct spellings.

The reasons for there being multiple correct spellings possible will depend on the particular location being considered.
