*nelli or perhaps *nelloi or *neldi is a Telerin word perhaps meaning "singers".

The word is seen in the Fallinelli and Soloneldi (which may actually be a Quenya-Telerin hybrid)

The independent word "singer" is probably *nello.

Etymology

It comes from a possible Primitive Elvish *nyeldo Root NYEL.
