I believe the ugly Linode hostname you mention is the rDNS hostname set within your Linode manager. Log in to your manager, choose the Linode's dashboard and check the "Remote Access" tab. If you find the ugly Linode hostname in the "Public IPs" section, you may change it by clicking on the "Reverse DNS" link and set to anything you want.
