Scholars argue that immediately after the birth of Hanuman his mother Anjana named him Sunder (handsome boy) as he was extremely charming owing to the Divine Power in him. In support of this supposition a number or scholars say that the fifth chapter of the Ramayana which highlights the great and glorious deeds of Hanuman has been entitled as Sunder Kand (also in Valmiki Ramayana).
