Elvenhome was a general term for a land inhabited by Elves. It almost always refers to Eldamar (which is 'Elvenhome' in the Elves' own tongue), the homeland of the Elves in Aman; but can also refer to Doriath[1] and an Elvenhome is mentioned in the Hobbit-poem The Hoard[2], obviously modelled after Nargothrond.
