Solosimpi

In the early versions of Tolkien's legendarium (see: The Book of Lost Tales Part One), the Falmari were known as Solosimpi ("Pipers of the Shores"), while the name Teleri was given to the clan of Elves known as the Vanyar.

Their leader was Tinwelint but after he was lost, they chose Ellu Melemno.[1]

The Solosimpi dwelt in Kopas Alqaluntë but many were slaughtered by the Gnomes under Fëanor.[2]
