Wive's happy family (trace)

Trouble findind any records of William J Storey-Day before his birth in 1896, or on 1901 and later cansus.
I then came across these two records on Family Search

Arthur Harvey Storey-day and Alice with daughter Henry born 6.3.1910 Aldershot, and Henry John Storey-day and Alicia with child Florence Emily born 4.10.1908

I found Arthur Storey on the latest census aged 27 of Milbourne Port Somerset with wife Alice 24 of Poole dorset and children Florence 2 and Henry 1 both of Aldershot. They were living at 4 Wellington gardens, Holly Rd, Aldershot.

Why the record for Henry John I am bemused as both children are with Arthur, or why they are only called Storey on the census.

On the same census, I then found Hubert Storey 52 from Millbourne Port with wife Mary Ann 53 Millbourne (married 28 yrs 7 child) and children William Jessie 15 and Peasey 10 (Percy?). They were living at 3 Wellington Gardens, Aldershot, next door to Arthur.

On 1901 census the family is
Herbert 43 Millborough Port, Horseman, Mary 44 Millborough, A son 16 (could be Arthur), E son 15, - both born Millborough; Herbert 12 Ash, Willie 5 Aldershot (Could be William Jessie), Percy 3 Aldershot

So where does the addition of Day to the surname come from??
