So why is the Arabic ليبيا transliterated in English as Libya, and not Libia? It seems inconsistent to have an i in one place and a y in the other. On the other hand, if English spellers can concoct Kyrgyzstan then Lybya might have been a goer as well.

The English name comes straight from Latin, which came from Greek:

It would seem both Libya and Libia were used by the Romans. Regardless, the name was revived by Italy with the spelling of Libya.

I'm one of the two-thirds who missed Saudi Arabia. I wonder why it was more difficult to get than the others? After seeing the answer I couldn't believe it wasn't the first one I thought of.

I think it's the two word factor. I wonder if there is a quiz for two word countries. I'm sure there is, just need to look.

Wow. I got Saudi Arabia first and then Serbia. The only one I struggled on was Namibia. Seems I did it in the completely opposite order to the way most people did!

Since all the countries end in "bia", couldn't you technically accept just the first parts of the countries' names for the answers`?

Technically, yes, but it's a pretty short quiz anyway, so I think I'll leave it as it is :)

Somehow, Namibia popped straight into my head, but I dismissed it because of the i before the b - which makes absolutely no sense, but it still ended up being the only I missed because I didn't even try it.
