- There are zillions of ways of spelling Muammar Gaddafi's name. That is because the name sounds different in Libyan Arabic (the spoken Arabic dialect in Libya) and Modern Standard Arabic (the academic and literary Arabic across the Middle East) - The name would be written the same way in either Arabic dialect, but in English it would be transcribed differently. On top of that there are multiple romanization systems of Arabic to English. So you have "Qaddafi," "Gadhafi," "Gaddafi," "Kaffafi," etc. not to mention several was of spelling "Muammar" too!
