Everyones vs Everyone vs Everyone's: What's the Plural of 'Everyone'?

By Shanea Patterson, updated on February 17, 2023

Are you trying to pluralize the word ‘everyone,’ but you’re unsure of exactly how to do that? Is it 'everyones,' 'evveryone'' or 'everyone's'?

We’ve got you covered. In this article, we’ll go over that, plus teach you how to use both the singular and plural versions of the word in a sentence.

In short, the word 'everyone' does not have a plural version. 'Everyone's' either implies a contraction or possession.

What are the Rules for Plurals in English?

In most cases, you’d get the plural form of the word by simply adding an ‘s’ or ‘es’ to the end of a word.

For example:

  • King > Kings
  • Car > Cars
  • Draw > Draws
  • Watch > Watches
  • Catch > Catches
  • Itch > Itches

When trying to find the plural form of the word ‘everyone,’ know there isn't one.

‘Everyone’s' is acceptable, but it's not the plural version of the word. It's meant to imply a contraction or possession.

You should never spell the word with two ‘v’s’ in any circumstance. Avoid it in your writing altogether. 

Terms or Phrase Using ‘Everyone’  

  • Everyone who’s anyone
  • Everyone has a story

Definition of ‘Everyone’

Before we look at how to use both the singular and plural forms in a sentence, let’s define the word quickly.

The word "everyone" is a pronoun that refers to every person without exception. It is used to indicate the inclusiveness of a group or population, meaning that it includes all members of that group or population.

In other words, "everyone" means all the people who are involved in a particular situation or who are being referred to. It can be used in a variety of contexts, such as in general statements, invitations, or descriptions of groups of people.

In other words:

"Everyone loves a good joke" means that all people, without exception, enjoy a good joke.

A Note On Using Apostrophes for Plurals

As you might have noticed, the plural of everyone contains an apostrophe, which isn’t typical with most plural words.

Usually, you simply add an ‘s’ or ‘es.’

However, the apostrophe is meant to imply possession or contraction.

For example, you might say:

“I thought ‘everyone’s’ opinion of me would change once I got my degree.”

‘Everyones’ is incorrect. It always requires an apostrophe. That’s because it’s a pronoun, so when you pluralize it, it doesn’t follow the same rules as a noun.

How to Use ‘Everyone’ and Its Plural in a Sentence

Now that you know what the word means, let’s take a look at some examples of how to use it in a sentence in both forms.


  • I want everyone to come on the family vacation this year. No excuses.
  • Everyone needs to wash their dishes themselves. No one should have to clean up after anyone.
  • Everyone has been through a lot. We need to support each other after such a traumatic day.
  • I’m not letting everyone go. Just a few cars because I don’t want to back up traffic. 


  • Everyone’s always saying how much they loved Katie. She had such a warm heart. (contraction)
  • Everyone’s saying they want yogurt, but there’s not enough for everybody. (contraction)
  • Don’t lump everyone’s problems together. We’re all individual people with our own lives. (possession)
  • Everyone’s wearing a ball down to the gala tomorrow evening. I don’t have anything to wear. (contraction)
  • Everyone’s opinion matters. Let’s not ignore anyone. (possession)

Final Thoughts on the Plural of ‘Everyone’  

To recap what we learned:

  • The plural of ‘everyone’ is ‘everyone’s.’

That’s the only correct way to pluralize the word. Never pluralize this word without an apostrophe. Otherwise, it won’t make sense.
