Vandalov is the closest I can find. It seems to be confined to Slovakia. The Slovak word vandal means 'vandal' (one who willfully destroys things), but the surname is more likely based on the name of the tribe. It could even mean 'the Andalusian', because the name of this part of Spain also derives from 'Vandal'. The name Andalovski also exists.
