Since childhood, Maruti was very naughty and used to trouble everyone. One day, while sitting near his window, he saw the sun and misunderstood it to be a sweet fruit. So, he flew towards the sun to eat it. The scared Sun god approached Lord Indra, who struck at Maruti with his ‘vajra’ (thunderbolt). The vajra hit Maruti on his jaw and he fell dead, on the earth, with a disfigured jaw.
His divine father, Pavan dev, (also known as Vayu dev) was very upset at this. He withdrew all air from the universe, causing immense discomfort to all living beings. Lord Shiva intervened and resuscitated Maruti. This pacified Pavan dev, and he released the air back into the universe. Since the mistake was done by Indra, he gave a boon to Maruti that his body would become as strong as his ‘vajra’. Other devtaas also gave boons and divine powers to Maruti. Due to the strike of Indra’s, Maruti’s jaw was disfigured, so he got the name Hanuman, which is actually a combination of two words ‘Hanu + Man’, where ‘hanu’ means jaw and man means broken or disfigured. Hence, Hanuman means ‘disfigured or broken jaw. Since that day, Maruti came to be known as ‘Hanuman’.

Then there are some names given to him due to his deeds like Sankat Mochak (remover of all hurdles), Room Doot (messenger of Lord Rama) etc. But the most common name the people use to address the deity is Hanuman.
