Is the second element of the compound from the Latin third-declension noun? And if I can ask more than one question assuming the answer to the first is "yes," did that noun begin in r?

Is the second element derived from a Latin first-declension noun?

I'll ask just in case… was the second element feminine in Latin?

The first element could be masculine or feminine.
To clarify, you mean that this is one word that, in Classical Latin, is sometimes attested as masculine, and other times is attested as feminine?

Correct, and there was apparently a semantic difference depending on the gender. It falls under what is sometimes referred to as the “common” gender.

Was the nominative singular form of the first noun two syllables in Classical Latin?
