That is by design, and not abnormal. it happens because your computer also has a name called its NetBIOS name:
Please download MiniToolBox, save it to your desktop and run it.
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
Click Go and post the result (Result.txt). A copy of Result.txt will be saved in the same directory the tool is run.
- List content of Hosts
- List IP configuration
Note: When using "Reset FF Proxy Settings" option Firefox should be closed.

Compared to your example I see no name at all under local address but my internal IP - 192.168.0.100. Maybe we are talking about different stuff, maybe this isnt called resolving as I thought.
You cannot turn off NetBIOS your entire computer would fail to do anything. NetBIOS is a critical service for Windows Applications and Services.
Look at my picture again under lsass.exe you will see my computer which is capricorn and domain of home as such becoming capricorn.home which resolves to both my internal IP of 127.0.0.1 and my interface card of 192.168.1.13 so what you are exhibiting is absolutely normal.
