Remove suffix from hostnames?

My Vodafone HG659 router seems to add a suffix to my computers' hostnames. For example, my primary PC is called "catheryn", but I can only look it up under "catheryn_ethernet":

 

<me>@alicia:~$ nslookup catheryn
Server:        127.0.0.1
Address:    127.0.0.1#53

** server can't find catheryn: NXDOMAIN

<me>@alicia:~$ nslookup catheryn_ethernet
Server:        127.0.0.1
Address:    127.0.0.1#53

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    catheryn_ethernet.home
Address: 192.168.1.2

 

How do I disable this "feature" on the router?
