== Etymology==
 
== Etymology==
''Amandil'' is [[Quenya]] for "Lover of Aman",<ref>{{S|Index}}, entry "Amandil"</ref> from ''[[Aman]]'' + ''-[[ndil]]'' ("lover").<ref>{{S|Appendix}}, entries ''mân'', ''[[-ndil|(n)dil]]''</ref>
+
''Amandil'' means "Devoted to [[Aman]]" in [[Quenya]] (from ''-[[dil]]'' = "friend, lover, devoted to").
  
 
The [[Adûnaic]] version of his name is '''''Aphanuzîr''''',<ref>{{SD|3iiic}}, p. 389</ref> probably meaning "Bliss-friend".<ref>{{webcite|author=Paul Strack|articleurl=http://eldamo.org/content/words/word-2313573009.html|articlename=Ad.

[[Elentir]], intended to be a brother of Amandil, was a character developed but never fully adapted into the formal history of Númenor. In one version of the story of [[Ar-Pharazôn]], his future wife [[Tar-Míriel|Míriel]], the daughter of the current king, was betrothed to Elentir. However, she fell desperately in love with Pharazôn and chose to become his queen when he took up the [[Sceptre of Númenor]]. This story is very different than the tale in the published ''[[The Silmarillion]]'', where Ar-Pharazôn takes Míriel very much against her will in order to claim the Sceptre. In either case, Elentir disappeared before Nùmendil died, leaving Amandil as the [[Lords of Andúnië|Lord of Andúnië]].<ref>{{PM|Akallabeth}}</ref>
