What was/is the true and correct name of Ted Cruz’s mother? Prior to Cruz releasing his Canadian birth certificate back in August, 2013 (The Dallas Morning News) we read that his mother’s name is Eleanor Darragh:

We here at WOBIK also used the “Eleanor Darragh” name in our December 3, 2012 report: Canadian born Rafael Edward Cruz, son of a non-US citizen (Cuban father). US President 2016?
When Cruz released a copy of a 1971-issued (abstract of birth) Certificate of Birth (which many Birthers like to refer to as a “short form”) we learned that his mother’s name was listed as Eleanor Elizabeth Wilson.
Is it Eleanor Darragh or Eleanor Elizabeth Wilson? Are they both correct?
Does the name Darragh fit in somewhere as a second-middle name or a second last name? If so, do we have solid evidence of this?
Or did Eleanor remarry at some point and take her new husband’s name?
I’m sure that all of this is innocent and can easily be explained but I’d like to have the answer documented (with evidence) here at WOBIK for research related purposes.
