Naming customs - Civil Registration vs. Baptismal names

Classification: Query
I am quite new to genealogy research in Mexico and I have been finding different names for the children in one of my families depending on where the information is recorded. For example, in the civil registration one child's name is Ynes Amada but in the Baptismal records she is recorded as Maria Ignes. Her brother is recorded as Victorino Jesus and Jose Victoriano. Her sister is Magdalena Jesus and Maria Julieta de Jesus. All other information matches - parents, birth date, etc. Is this a typical thing to find or is it unusual? I'm just not sure what to think.

Any insight would be appreciated.
