Elvenhome almost always refers to Eldamar (which is "Elvenhome" in the Elves' own tongue), the homeland of the Elves in Aman,[1] but also was a general term for a land inhabited by Elves.

For example, Elvenhome can also refer to Doriath,[2] and an Elvenhome is mentioned in the Hobbit-poem The Hoard,[3] obviously modelled after Nargothrond.[source?]
