Template:Youmay Ivanneth was the name among the Dúnedain for the ninth month of the year, more commonly known in Middle-earth by its Quenya title, Yavannië, and approximately equivalent to modern September. Its name comes from the words yávë ("fruit") and anna ("gift"), a reference to the harvests of autumn, and connected to the name of Yavanna, the Vala of earth and growth.[1]

The month of Ivanneth in the second year of the Third Age is historically important as the time when Isildur set out from Osgiliath to ride for the North-kingdom of the Dúnedain. Before the month was out, he and his companions were set upon by Orcs out of the autumn-coloured trees of Mirkwood, and the Ring Isildur bore was lost in the Great River.[2]
