'Randomly generated hostnames'

I am amused by this list of randomly generated hostnames that a server has just presented to me :

  • orophin.clareassociates.com

  • spock.clareassociates.com

  • sneezy.clareassociates.com

  • osgiliath.clareassociates.com

  • malbeth.clareassociates.com

  • rohirrim.clareassociates.com

  • laurelindornan.clareassociates.com

  • sneezey.clareassociates.com

  • mardil.clareassociates.com

  • amroth.clareassociates.com

... shouldn't that be Laurelindórenan ? I can forgive the accents, but it's missing an 'e', isn't it...?

Spock looks lonely among all the Middle Earth names, and I wonder why if adding Seven Dwarves to Middle Earth (surely an idea fraught with peril?) we got two versions of Sneezy rather than say Grumpy.   Or maybe one of the Sneezys is Bilbo in Laketown.
