MANILA - US President Barack Obama is at a loss over President Benigno Aquino's nickname, it seems.

During his joint press briefing with Aquino on Monday afternoon and state dinner a few hours later, Obama referred to the Philippine leader as either "Niño" or "Nonoy."

The US leader's confusion drew snark on Twitter.

President Aquino's nickname is Noynoy.
