Vána (Q: "Beauty", pron. [ˈvaːna]) or Wána (Vanyarin, [ˈwaːna]) was the name of a Valië also called the Ever-young. She was the younger sister of Yavanna and wife of Oromë. "All flowers spring as she passes and open if she glances upon them; and all birds sing at her coming."[1] She dwelt in gardens filled with golden flowers and often came to the forests of Oromë.

Before her departure to Middle-earth, the Maia Melian served Vána and Estë, tending the flowering trees in the gardens of Irmo.[2] Another Maia, Arien, tended the golden flowers of the garden of Vána before she was chosen as the guide of the vessel of the Sun.[3]

Other versions of the legendarium

In the earliest form of the mythology, Vána and Oromë had the daughter Nielíqui.[4]
