it should be "localhost" or "localhost.localdomain" if you are looking for the default.

It is, what /etc/hosts should contain as default:
127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.0.1 localhost.localhost localhost

Actually there shouldn't be duplicate IP entries - it should only contain:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localhost localhost
