What is the vocative case for such nouns as Perseus and adjectives like ligneus?

For Greek proper names ending in -eus the vocative is -eu, so for Perseus it would be Perseu. I do not know about ligneus (something tells me it may be ligni, but given the controversy I've seen on a common word like deus, I wouldn't be surprised if there are different answers from different authorities).
The lists:
G'Oogle and the Internet Pharrchive - 1100 or so free Latin and Greek books.
DownLOEBables - Free books from the Loeb Classical Library
