Something to keep in mind is that underscore (ie, _ ) is technically not
a valid character in DNS, and thus should probably be avoided in hostnames.
However, a dash - is valid, so blue-midget is fine!
(Yes, I know most if not all DNS servers/clients will handle underscores,
but thats not the point)
