1、ven- "sexual love, sexual desire" + -ere + -al.
- venereal:  Latin venus meant ‘love, charm’ (it came ultimately from the same Indo- European base as produced English wish and winsome and Sanskrit vānchā ‘wish’). It was not that common as a generic term, its most familiar role being as the name of the Roman goddess of love. From it was derived venereus ‘of sexual love or sexual intercourse’, which English borrowed and adapted as venereal.
The term venereal disease dates from the mid 17th century. Other contributions made by Latin venus to English include venerable  and venerate  (from Latin venerārī ‘revere’, a derivative of venus), venial , and possibly venom.
