The peoples called Middle-earth by several names. The Elves called the continent [[Endóre]] or [[Endor]] in [[Quenya]] meaning "middle land"; the [[Sindarin]] form was [[Ennor]], also used in the plural ''ennorath'' "middle lands, lands of Middle-earth".

Other epithets of the continent were '''[[Hither Lands]]''' or '''Outer Lands''' in [[the Silmarillion]]<ref name=ix>{{S|Index}}</ref> contrasted to [[Aman]] beyond the sea. In the [[Akallabêth]] it was also the '''Great Lands''',<ref name=ix/> since it was so much larger than the island of [[Elenna]].
