In Inner Mongolia, there is one rule in some famous dictionary, the O is not used after first Syllable. 
It is only used in first Syllable.
But it is the endless linguistic argument actually.
We cannot say which is correct and which is incorrect. 
That is one reason, why there are so many different spelling.

In the word ABU, rules of vowel harmony will demand that the following gedes (ie loop) is a U and not the weaker O.
The word needs to be led by an O in order to be followed by an O.

As far as I can make out, knowing the Cyrillic spelling (аав) and knowing what the Mongolian script spelling looks like still leaves one with two alternatives - O and U.  Are people missing an obvious clue as to the spelling?
