yunque is the number twelve (12) in Quenya.[1][2]

Etymology

It is a composite from + ence "double six". PQ form given also as yu-(e)neke > yunuk(w)[3] > yunke.

Note that both ence and yunce were later changed to enque and yunque due to the influence of minquë. After that, yunque is perceived as yú + enque
