Why do you say it is undocumented? From http://erlang.org/doc/man/erl.html

*-name Name*

Makes the Erlang runtime system into a distributed node. This flag invokes
all network servers necessary for a node to become distributed. See
net_kernel(3) <http://erlang.org/doc/man/net_kernel.html>. It is also
ensured that epmd runs on the current host before Erlang is started. See
epmd(1) <http://erlang.org/doc/man/epmd.html>.

*The name of the node will be , where Host is the fully qualified
host name of the current host*. For short names, use the -sname flag
instead.
