Could mean "roaring gate" from Old Japanese 鳴 (naru) meaning “to ring; to roar; to sound” combined with 門 (to) meaning “gate, door”. This name is used to describe both a narrow between Awaji Island and Shikoku in Japan and the strong whirlpools that occur there.A fictional bearer is Naruto (ナルト) Uzumaki (うずまき), the main character of the manga and anime franchise 'Naruto'. In this case the name could be inspired by narutomaki (鳴門巻き), a cured fish surimi often used to cook ramen.
