Uinen (Quenya Tengwar: lU5$5; IPA: [ˈuɪnen]) was a Maia spirit known as The Lady of the Sea and the wife of Ossë in the Middle-earth mythos of J. R. R. Tolkien. Her hair lies spread throughout all waters, and her love is given to the creatures that live in salt streams and also the weeds that grow there. The Teleri had much love for Uinen, as she and Ossë had befriended them at the river Sirion. Uinen wept for the Teleri mariners after the Kinslaying at Alqualondë.
During the Second Age, the mariners of Númenór would cry to her for help, because she was capable of calming Ossë, and they lived under her protection while their respect for the Valar endured. It was also part of Númenórean legend that she had the island of Tol Uinen placed in the Bay of Rómenna as a gift to the people of Númenór.
