Elvenland

The realm of the Eldar in the West

"Beyond the western world, on sand,
On sand of pearls in Elvenland.
"
From The Lay of Leithian
as quoted in Quenta Silmarillion 9
Of Beren and Lúthien

The lands in Aman, west of the Great Sea, where the Elves dwelt, and to which they would journey from the havens of Middle-earth. The name is a translation of the Elvish word Eldamar, and appears in various related forms, such as 'Elvenhome' or 'Elvenesse'. This same part of Aman is sometimes referred to as 'Faerie'.
