Saruman is a masculine name of Old English origin, made famous thanks to the writer of The Lord of the Rings, JRR Tolkien. It means "skillful" and "cunning," which is indeed fitting for the trickster wizard. The name itself comes from the Mercian dialect of Anglo-Saxon. He wields his power with shocking menace, making for one of the ultimate baddies of high fantasy.
