Q. Anducal m. “*Light of the West”

Q. Anducal, m. “*Light of the West”
The name assumed by Herucalmo, husband of queen Tar-Vanimeldë, when he withheld the throne of Númenor from his son Alcarin (UT/222). This name seems to be a combination of the prefix andú- “West” (as in Andúril) and cala “light”, so perhaps it means “*Light of the West”.
