Q. Malantur m. “?Golden Lord”

Q. Malantur, m. “?Golden Lord”
The son of Caliondo, who would have become the seventh ruler of Númenor had the laws not been changed to allow his cousin Ancalimë to become the first ruling queen (UT/208). The final element of his name seems to be the suffix -tur “master, lord”. The meaning of the initial element is unclear, but it might be related to malina “yellow, golden”, so meaning: “*Golden Lord”.
