Not more f***ing Elves! - Hugo Dyson
While thinking about this recent question asking who is an "Elf-Lord", I realized it would be simpler to say who among the Elves is not a Lord. Nearly every elf named by Tolkien in any of his works is a lord or noble of some sort. There are only a few instances where "common" elves appear. Some of these might be nobles anyway.
- Daeron of Doriath, minstrel and inventor of the Cirth
- Rúmil, a chronicler of Tirion upon Túna
- Pengoloð, a chronicler in Beleriand in early drafts of the Silmarillion
- Beleg the hunter of Doriath, slain by Túrin. (might be noble)
- Lindo and Vairë, proprietors of the Cottage of Lost Play
- Haldir, leader of the group that finds the Fellowship sans Gandalf in Lothlórien.
Of named "common" Elves, I think that's it. There are plenty of implied elves, such as the River-Elves and Círdan's mariners, but there are only a few others pointed out specifically:
- the steward and the prison guard in Thranduil's halls
- the guys under Haldir
- the Elves who taunt Bilbo and the dwarves as they enter Rivendell
