Sorry writing in English. As far as I know, the genitive of Venesúela is Venesúela, not Venesúelu, isn't it? I found (via Goggle) 1890 pages containing ''"Forseti Venesúela"'', but just 3 containing ''"Forseti Venesúelu"'' (of witch this article is one).

:A Google test is not reliable. Icelandic is an inflected language. Feminine words that end in -a tend to end in -u in the oblique cases. Venesúela is not an exception, it is declined exactly like Kólumbía, Argentína, Brasilía etc., all of which end in -u in the oblique cases. If Venesúela did end in -a in the genitive, then it would also end in -a in the other oblique cases; you would then have to say that for some reason Venesúela, unlike the names of the other countries I just mentioned, just isn't declined at all in Icelandic since it would look the same in all the cases. Why would anyone think that? --[[Notandi:Cessator|Cessator]] 10. apríl 2008 kl. 23:19 (UTC)
 
Venesúela is a neuter word, isn't it? In compound words, like ''"<u>Venesúela</u>maður"'', the genitive used is ''"Venesúela"''; compare with ''"<u>Argentínu</u>maður"'' or ''"<u>Brasilíu</u>maður"''. --[[Notandi:LipeFontoura|LipeFontoura]] 10. apríl 2008 kl. 23:22 (UTC)
 
MBL.is ([http://www.mbl.is/mm/frettir/erlent/frett.html?nid=1271738 here]) uses ''"Venesúela"'', and so does Háskólinn í Reykjavík ([http://www.hr.is/?PageID=746&NewsID=1994 here]). --[[Notandi:LipeFontoura|LipeFontoura]] 10. apríl 2008 kl. 23:28 (UTC)
