Deep Elves

 / Deep Elf / Deep-elves / Deep-elf
   A name for the Noldor.
   -----
   "Next came the Noldor, a name of wisdom, the people of Finwë. They are the Deep Elves, the friends of Aulë; and they are renowned in song..." (Quenta Silmarillion 3, Of the Coming of the Elves and the Captivity of Melkor)
   -----
   A rarely-used name for the Noldor, the division of the Elves that Finwë led into Valinor.
   'Deep' is here used in the sense of 'profound' or 'wise'; the Noldor were considered the most learned and inventive of the Eldar; the great Vala Aulë taught them much during their time in Aman.
