Yavannië (Ivanneth in Sindarin) was the ninth month of the year in the King's Reckoning and the Stewards' Reckoning of Gondor, following Úrimë, and preceding the month of Narquelië. In the New Reckoning it was the sixth month of the year. In the Stewards' Reckoning, Yavannië preceded the autumn feast of Yáviérë.

Yavannië in the Kings' Reckoning (and for the most part in the Stewards' Reckoning) corresponded to Halimath in the Shire Calendar (approximately modern 23 August through 21 September).[1]
