Nessa (Q: "Young", pron. [ˈnesːa]) or Vanyarin Neþþa ([ˈneθːa]) is a Valië. She is the wife of Tulkas and sister of Oromë. Her name in Sindarin is Neth ([neθ]). Nessa is noted for her speed, able to outrun the deer who follow her in the wild, and also for her dancing ability, as she dances on the ever-green lawns of Valinor.

Nessa is the least of the Valar. All Ainur lesser than her are Maiar.
