'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.

That's different.

Laurelin"dorn"an leapt out at me, too. Definitely supposed to be an "'e" in there. That's one of the login names on my computer; in theory, it's my Serious Academic Account Aloof From My Net-Loafing account, but somehow it never gets used, but it does stare me in the face whenever I'm at the login screen...

[ETA for ironic spelling mistake]
