    Grep to identify three to four or five initial words in lists

      In a long list of names sometimes there are minor differences among the same names but the output gives two entries although in practice is only one


      How to grep similar patterns in this list to later visually check differences?

      As numbers may change the grep should avoid that circumstance.

      With this grep will be very easy detect them as the variations most of time happen at the end of the line, after 3, 4 words.
