Manny Pacquiao: Most common misspellings on Internet

Written by
Emmanuel "Manny" Dapidran Pacquiao, PLH (/ˈpæki.aʊ/ pak-ee-ow; Tagalog: [pɐkˈjaʊ] is a 36 year Filipino professional boxer, basketball player, politician, actor, and singer.

(Well, he'll be 36 in 11 days)

He is the first and only 8-division world champion, has won ten world titles, as is the first boxer to win the coveted lineal championship in four different weight classes.

And, according to Google, he was the most searched for athlete in 2011.

A sports superstar, the current WBO welterweight champion is one of boxing's pound-for-pound best and undoubtedly an all-time great. However, his name may still be one of the most commonly misspelled in sports.


When Manny vaulted into high-profile boxing in 2001, HBO commentators Jim Lampley and George Foreman could hardly pronounce his name so it's no surprise some, perhaps new to boxing, cannot spell it.

Here are the most common misspellings for Manny Pacquiao:
  • many paquiao
  • mani paquiao
  • many pacquiao
  • manny paquiao
  • mani pacquiao
  • manny pacquio
  • manny paquio
  • manny pacqiao
  • manny pacquia
  • manny pacquioa

There's no shame in misspelling "Pacquiao" but how does one misspell "Manny?"

My favorites are ""Many Pacquiao" and "Mani Pacquiao" where his last name is typed correctly but his first name, the easy one, is butchered.

And while he has won "many" titles, his first name is not "Many."


Of course, the most common mistake is "Many Paquiao" and in 4 of the top ten misspellings, users forget there is a "c" before the "q."

If you've reached this page because you misspelled his name, don't feel so bad. People do it all of the time.

Next up is Flowd Mayweather... er... Floyd Mayweather.
