They are also called 'the Eldar' (People of the Stars), the term is used to separate the elves who went to Valinor and those who didn't (the Avari). The name was given to them by Oromë, the Valar who first found them by the shores of Cuiviénen. There were three different Kindreds - the Vanyar, the Noldor, and the Teleri.
