The term Gnomes was briefly used in J.R.R. Tolkien's's early work The Book of Lost Tales to descrive the race of Elves that would become the Noldor. He dropped the term in his published works, since he found the Gnomes of folklore to be so unlike his High Elves as to confuse his readers. "Gnomes" at one time also referred to the Valar.
