Elves are sometimes called the Firstborn or the Elder Kindred (as opposed to Men, the second born) as they were "awakened" before Men by the creator of the universe, Eru Ilúvatar. The Elves named themselves Quendi ("the Speakers"), in honour of the fact that, when they were created, they were the only living beings able to speak.
