I've seen different versions of what the Máhanaxar looks like, but I've always envisaged it as being very simple, like a Norse or Celtic gathering-place, or even more primeval. A grassy circle in the open air, bathed in the light of the Two Trees, surrounded by banked earthworks in concentric circles where the thrones of the Valar are set. (And the Maiar who are present stand on the outer circles.) Kind of like a natural amphitheatre, or (*waves to curiouswombat*) like an inverted and rather larger Tynwald Hill.
Námo presumably means 'doomed' in the old sense of 'fated' or 'predestined' rather than 'bound to end in disaster'. Though having said that...
