Q. Russandol m. “Copper-top”

Q. Russandol, m. “Copper-top”

A nickname of Maedhros, translated “Copper-top”, from which his Sindarin name was partially derived (PM/353). The initial element of this name is russa “red-haired” (PM/366) and the second element is probably some derivative of the root ᴹ√NDOL “*head”.
