Sauron, Saruman Name Confusion
William S., Jr.

Peter Jackson will have to do nothing to keep the names from being confusing.  If you read the appendix of The Lord of the Rings, it clearly states that Sauron is pronounced "Sour-on", not "Sah-ron."

If the names are simply pronounced correctly, there will be no confusion at all.
