masculine name. ?World Pillar

The Adûnaic name of the Tar-Ardamin, the 19th rulers of Númenor (UT/222). His Quenya name appears to mean “World Tower”. The last element of his Adûnaic name is clearly Ad. târik* “pillar”, so perhaps its meaning is similar. If so, the first element of his Adûnaic name may mean “World”. Andreas Moehn suggested (EotAL/BAN¹) this element is likely *aban or abân, with the final n altered to t in the compound according to the rules of Adûnaic assimilation.
