(RNN) - Wisconsin's most misspelled word is "Wisconsin," according to Google.

Google Trends released an infographic on Twitter of America's most misspelled words Tuesday, in recognition of this week's Scripps National Spelling Bee. It listed the word most searched for "how to spell" in each state.

"Beautiful" and "pneumonia" were No. 1 in four states each. Others appearing for multiple states included "tomorrow," "hallelujah," "Chihuahua," and "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious."

Some of the more unusual entries: Georgia's "gray," "banana" for New Mexico, and "people" in Hawaii. Also, Rhode Island went with "liar" the most and Louisiana must have loved the April live stream, with "giraffe."

 Washington, DC, had "ninety" as its most searched. Ironically, it was misspelled "nintey" in the first map released.

Google should've Googled it.
