The Nelyar (Q, pron [ˈneʎar]) was the original name of the third Clan of the elves, Teleri, before the Great March. The Clan-name, meaning 'Thirds' (q. cardinal nelya 'third') was derived from the name of the father of the Clan, Enel 'Three'. Enel was the third Elf-father, who awoke at Cuiviénen.

They were the largest clan, being the 74/144 of the population. Of those, the 46/74 followed Elwë to the West and became the Teleri, while 28/74 stayed back.

The other original clans were Minyar 'Firsts', and Tatyar 'Seconds' according to the Elf-fathers Imin 'One' and Tata 'Two'.
