Q. Urundil m. “Copper-lover”
An early sobriquet of the father of Nerdanel, more widely known than his given name Sarmo (PM/366). This name is a compound of the root √URUN “copper” and the suffix -(n)dil “-friend, -lover”. In later writings, Tolkien changed his given name from Sarmo to Mahtan, so perhaps this sobriquet no longer applied.
