I'm pretty sure Arabic names don't have correct spellings.

to be a little more...precise (and less offensive, really), the transliteration from arabic to latin (and vice versa) isn't exact- both languages have different phonemes and stresses for similar ones. which results in multiple spellings/interpretations for the same phonic value.
see: usama bin laden, osama bin laden, qaddafi, gaddaffy, khadaffy, etc.
