[edit] Name

Further to the comment above from Dwarf Lord, I'd like to consider moving this. 136 links go to "Erebor", and only 74 go to "Lonely Mountain", however, I think - at least in my experience - that "Lonely Mountain" is the more commonly-used name. Importantly, I think I am correct in saying that the name "Erebor" doesn't appear within The Hobbit as it is exclusively referred to as "Lonely Mountain"; it'll be interesting to see whether the films follow the same usage.
