Having two aliases for the same field will result in 3 fields (the original plus 2 aliases) with the same data.  That may be necessary for some use cases, which means you have to live with it.  Fortunately, aliases are search-time operations so no storage is consumed.  If you don't have a need for multiple aliases for the same data then remove one of them.

If this reply helps you, Karma would be appreciated.
