Accuracy of location's name

I question the accuracy of this location's name. I cannot recall a specific name given to this location by Turbine or Tolkien. A search through the wiki reveals no corroborating references or details. Searching the web via Google returns a few related links, but these also lack citations to support the name. Lastly, "pierre fou" is French (not Black Speech), meaning "crazy stone"(per Google translate), a possible allusion to the odd rock formations the camp is situated within. If neither Turbine or Tolkien have created a name for this camp, I would suggest changing the name to Stonehold Goblin Camp or something similar. The current name is neither accurate or appropriate "as is". -- Squirmier (talk)

The camp is un-named in LOTRO, called only Goblin Camp in the quests.

Exactly. Problem is, there are several unnamed goblin camps in the North Downs. I only found this page through Goblin-slayer (North Downs) links. Why does this camp rate a name and the others don't? Further, why a name in French for a predominantly English wiki? At least Stonehold Goblin Camp (or similar) is appropriate, descriptive and logical. Perhaps a link page (like the Categories boilerplate) or a disambiguation page for Goblin Camp might be the best option?
