Do any words have three or more correct spellings? [closed]

I can call to mind several words with another correct spelling (colour, analogue, disc, barbeque) but I can’t think of any with multiple correct spellings, i.e. three or more equally acceptable, semantically identical variants of the same word. Do any exist?

Answer

Here’s a four-variant

aerie/aery/eyrie/eyry

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/aerie

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/eyrie#English

Though some dictionaries only list 3:
