Yelmalio = little yelm?

Jean Durupt said that he thinks that yelmalio is the beams of light that emanate from Yelm's eyes. That made me think of the etymology of Yelmalio, which I believe to mean "little Yelm," much as Orlantio is "little Orlanth" in Imther. So if Yelmalio is a part of Yelm, and is labeled "little Yelm," then what part suggests itself? The same part that Osiris and John Wayne Bobbit lost forever?

No wonder the Yelmites look down their long noses at the Yelmalions.
