@LeonardoHerrera: I don't know if "usually" is accurate, but that is does seem like a likely common mis-spelling. Wikipedia mentions 3 others, too.

Keep in mind that Mexican Spanish and U.S. Spanish are distinct dialects.

@Newbie: Uhm, but the 'G' is silent in Güey. That's the whole point.

@Newbie: What's your point? The ¨ changes the pronunciation of the gu from "g" (English) to "gw" (English). But Güey is not pronounced this way. It is pronounced as wey (English). According to phonetic spelling rules, it should be pronounced as gwey (English). The umlauts change the pronunciation, yes. But they don't make the G silent.

@Newbie: No, the 'G' is silent--at least as I've ever heard it pronounced, and according to wikipedia.

MikO: I wonder if you think the OP is asking for examples where English and Spanish differ in their phonetic spellings? Your answer might make sense in that context; but that's not what the question is about.

@WalterMitty: Saying that "México" should be "Méjico" is an over-simplification. But read about that here.
