Penni were one of the only six tribes of the Avari mentioned. They merged with the Wood-elves of the Vales of Anduin.[1]

It is suggested that the Penni belonged initially to the Nelyar, and the shift of PQ kw to p had already occurred among the Lindar the Sundering of the Elves.[2]

Etymology

penni is an Avarin word meaning "the People". It derives from Primitive Quendian kwendī.[1]
