Necromancy Can't Post

I've been thinking about all the fuss around the Nazgul's and (possibly) Azog's resurrections in the films, and I was wondering why, according to Tolkein, Sauron was given the name "the Necromancer"? If not them then what or who did he bring back to life in the books to earn this name?
