A Quenya name for him was Aiwendil, & Saruman's Q. name was Curumo rather.

That's 'Radagast', leave out the 'h'

Yup, and his name Radagast is said in UT to mean 'tender of beasts' in 'Númenórean'.

Which reference is footnoted:

"In a very late note on the names of the Istari Radagast is said to be a name deriving from the Men of the Vales of Anduin 'not now clearly interpretable.'"
