I'm 95% sure that they are both swords.

#1 Looks like an Amazon sword and #2 looks like it could be a Ruffle sword?

Hmm, #2 I think is a melon sword. I have no idea what #1 is, but it's not an amazon, the leaves are too narrow.

I think #2 is melon sword too... It looked very similar with this Aquatic Plants for Freshwater Aquariums: Melon Sword when I bought it. But I have a very low light tank so the leave become smaller and the young leave has red color. I like it that way.

Thanks.

It's not an amazonicas, it's a bleheri (I think) both called "Amazons".

I was thinking it could be a melon but my red melon and green melon don't have the ruffles that yours does.

The picture in that link is most likely that of plant grown emerged vs. submerged. Usually the red comes from high lighting and low nitrates and not low lighting.
