i dunno, but i think that "vanya" in elvish (quenya) is "beautiful" and when u add an "r" that makes it plural. so maybe it has summin to do with that?

They were the first kindred of the Eldar.(Elves) And the first kindred to go to Valinor in the First Age.

<center><font color="red">Indeed...

Some of the teleri remained in middleearth...
And some of the Noldor returned...
But al the vanyar remained in Valinor, and i think they were the most loved by the valar

Unless you count the children and grandchildren of Indis (Fingolfin, Turgon, Finrod, Galadriel, etc...) who had Vanyar blood.

Hello Samwise. I've been posting on the DC Message board, wizards.com, the TrekBBS and sometimes on barbelith.com.

[img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] I meant here in the 'Downs, but those sound interesting. I've never posted on the 'Downs anywhere but "Novices and Newcomers", 'cause I'm afraid I'll make a dummy of myself. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
As for OTHER boards I've been on: Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century, The SH22 RP board, and various poetry boards.....
