Qenya

-dacil

2EaTj suff. victor

1. See Hyarmendacil, Romendacil, Umbardacil.
2. In Sindarin, it would be degil, which is only found as part of a compound (Findegil).
3. It is probable that -cil itself is an ending, meaning "person"/"man"(such as in tarcil, meaning "king's-man" in Quenya), "-er"/"-or" (such as in -dacil, meaning victor). Also seen in macil, a Quenya noun with unknown translation found only in compounds (Calimacil, Narmacil). Note on macil: Sindarin form would be megil (translation unknown), as seen integrated into the compound names Arvegil and Malvegil.

According to Allan's book, "Initial form would be lacil or nacil (both hypothetical), depending on whether it derives from a [Proto-Eldarin] form dacil or ndacil.". Published by
