Well, I'm as confused as you are. Mostly because my very extensive dictionary do not at all include shamardal. It is however a dictionary over Modern Standard Arabic. Maybe shamardal is not "modern"...
I agree with you that the root should be sheen-meem-reh but that do not explain lam-dal, wich to me is not a known suffix. Is this one of the few exceptions? However, it seems like you solved the mystery around shamardal. It most likely means handsome - Al-Shamardal should therefore mean The Handsome.
Thank you for you're input on my posts, I really appreciate it.
