Gurunadha Swamy

Guru nadha is commonly known as - Karthikeya/Murugan, Skanda,swami natha[various names of subramanya]Origin of the word "GuruNadha"

It is belived that Lord Muruga teached the siginificance of 'pranava' to Lord shiva as once shiva had to forget 'pranava mantra'.This was bcoz shiva was cursed by a Rakshas to forget the pranava.Lord Swaminatha (Murugan) made shiva realize 'pranava' mantra again-thats why he is called 'gurunadha'
