Are you kidding when your say you don't understand Vázquez? I guess you are. It's a surname, anyway.

You both got it. I think you can compare each other for clarification.
Since carcamal hasn't got a tilde, it's pronounced like a palabra aguda: /kar ka mál/.

Some more for you:
  • Contemporaneo
  • Celeste.
  • Preciso.
  • Candido.
  • Joven.
  • Avestruz.
  • Jolin.
  • Madrid.
  • Chimenea.
  • Muerdago.
  • Aclaracion.
  • Reves.
  • Corazon.
  • Tendre.
  • Canoa.
  • Habia.

Spot on, Jane. Carcamal has the stress on the last syllable and it means somebody who is very old.
