Nielíqui was a Vala maiden according to the early version of the legendarium in The Book of Lost Tales. She was the daughter of Oromë and Vána. She also enjoyed dancing through her father's woods and Ómar would sometimes accompany her by singing along.
Nielikki was perhaps intended to be a "pet-name form" of Nieliqi.
