Smile Question for the native hindi speaker

Which version of the word Ranchi is the correct gramatical spelling and is more likely used?

1. रांची or 2. राँची

Wikipedia claims the correct version is #2, but most hindi print (newspapers) and maps use the first verion of the word. Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.

That is so weird. I had two native Hindi sources claim that the 1st example was the correct choice. Care to explain the difference between the two? Thanks for taking the time to respond.

cheers,

Re: Question for the native hindi speaker

You are right. I don't know why an incorrect version became more popular. However, when I was little boy it was refered by राँची. In last 8-10 years, most of newspaper adopted word रांची.
I assume you are asking the question for buying the domain. In that case, I would go with popular version that is रांची.
