There are some useful guidelines available in the document linked above.
If (as it sounds like is the case) you can confirm that there is a pattern here, then I believe it fits under case A.1.2 (“The person uses the real name and one pseudonym”) and should remain as two NARs, linked with “see also” references.

Subject: [PCCLIST] Variant or additional pseudonym
According to Goodreads and Recorded Books the following names represent the same narrator.
Lee, Polly no2008158957
MacNab, Ashford no2012001174
McNab, Ashford What I need to create/attach
670 Hoyt, Elizabeth. Duke of sin, p2016: ‡b disc label (Read by Ashford McNab)
Confirmed with Recorded books that she narrates under her real name, Polly Lee, for younger audiences and under Ashford McNab for more adult audiences.
Would the collective wisdom consider McNab, Ashford to be a variant of MacNab, Ashford or a different name and its own authority?
Any help is appreciated,
