Ancor, Amacor, Amides?

Hey all. There are a lot of conjurations that the grimoires have in common, or at least paraphrased. One of them, though, is interesting because it includes barbarous names. In the Key of Solomon, Heptameron, and more, there's the prayer "Ancor, Amacor, Amides, Theodinias, Anitor, by the merits of thy angels..." for when the magician puts on the vestments. Does anyone know where these words come from? Are they supposed to be angelic names?
