Revision as of 07:36, 25 October 2009 by Sage (Talk | contribs)

Eldamar was the land of the Elves in Aman, a coastal region that extended to Alqualonde.

Etymology

Eldamar means "Elvenhome" in Quenya (from elda = "High-elf" and már = "home").

Inspiration

The name is a direct translation of the mythological Elfhame (lit. "Elf-home") meaning "Elfland, Faery".
