Literature DictionaryTolkiens Middle-Earth Dictionary
The first host of the Three Kindreds of the Eldar on the Great Journey from Cuiviénen, led by Ingwë, all of whom left Middle-earth and remained in Aman.. The name (singular Vanya) means 'the Fair', referring to the golden hair of the Vanyar; see Finarfin.

The People of Ingwë.
The first of the Elves to make the great march westwards from Cuiviénen to Valinor, and accounted the highest of the High Elves. Their leader, Ingwë, bears the title High King of the Elves, and dwells on Taniquetil beneath the halls of Manwë.
All of the Vanyar journeyed to Valinor long before the beginning of the First Age, and remained there. For this reason, they are not mentioned often in the histories of Middle-earth.
