RANDOM_HOSTNAME=$(shuf -n 1 /etc/dictionaries-common/words | sed -r 's/[^a-zA-Z]//g' | awk '{print tolower($0)}')

 

All you have to do is to place a dictionary file in /etc/dictionaries-common/words and the rest will work.

You can find online many such dictionaries, one word per line.

I just did above.

 

change_hostname() {
echo
CURRENT_HOSTNAME=$(hostname)
clean_dhcp
RANDOM_HOSTNAME=$(shuf -n 1 /etc/dictionaries-common/words | sed -r 's/[^a-zA-Z]//g' | awk '{print tolower($0)}')
NEW_HOSTNAME=${1:-$RANDOM_HOSTNAME}
echo "$NEW_HOSTNAME" > /etc/hostnamesed -i 's/127.0.1.1.*/127.0.1.1\t'"$NEW_HOSTNAME"'/g' /etc/hosts
echo -n " * Service "service hostname start 2>/dev/null || echo "hostname already started"
