How do you spell Mendel in Hebrew/Yiddish?

I've seen it spelled:
Mem-nun-daled-lamed (modern Hebrew)
Mem-ayin-nun-daled-lamed (on the Rebbe's tombstone)
Mem-ayin-nun-daled-yud-lamed (tombstones of MM of Vitebsk, Rimonov and Kotzk)

Does anyone know which is the authentic spelling?

Does it matter which spelling I choose?

I would spell it according to the person I am naming after.

Mendel is a Yiddish name so the authentic spelling definitely has the "ayin" in it.
As far as how to spell it, it seems that they would both be authentic spellings. Similarly, the girls name Mindel can be spelled מינדל or מינדיל.
I would spell based on how my community spells the name.
