Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi has been in the headlines a lot this week --


But politics aside, we've come across a list of the many different English spellings of Gaddafi's name. Because of the difficulty translating Arabic to English, there are several different translations -- the Library of Congress lists 72 alternate spellings, and the New York times, Associated Press and Xinhua news sources used 40 additional spellings between 1998 and 2008.

We've posted all 112 of them below...
