Suriname, Surinam


Suriname, Surinam
   Confusion still sometimes arises concerning the name of this small South American country. The Encarta World English Dictionary, for instance, calls it Suriname under its main entry but labels it Surinam on a map elsewhere in the same volume. The spelling Surinam can now safely be regarded as historic and Suriname as the preferred modern spelling. The Suriname River and Suriname toad also take the modern spelling.
