Q. Pelendur m. “?Servant of the Border”

Q. Pelendur, m. “?Servant of the Border”

A steward of Gondor in the middle of the Third Age (LotR/1039). His name seem to be a compound of some derivative of the root √PEL “border” and the suffix -(n)dur “-servant”, so it perhaps means: “*Servant of the Border”.
