The One Wiki to Rule Them All

Úmanyar (Quenya for 'Not of Aman')[1] is another name for the Sindar ('Grey Elves'), Laiquendi ('Green Elves'), and some of the Moriquendi, as opposed to the Amanyar, 'Those of Aman', and Avamanyar, 'Those who would not go to Aman'. The majority were made up of the Teleri, the kindreds who started, but never completed the journey Aman or descended from them.

Many of the Sindar in Doriath, while not Amanyar and had never seen the light of the Two Trees of Valinor, were considered more enlightened having spent some time in the protection and radiance of Melian, one of the Maiar.
