Question Can't ping "$ localhost"

Hi,

$ hostname
lilium.my.domain
On the same box:
$ ping lilium.my.domain
ping: unknown host: lilium.my.domain
( $ping lilium gives the same output)

Is this normal? I have this result on two different OpenBSD computers.

$ talk [name]
talk: lilium.my.domain: Unknown host

This makes me think it is not normal. Shouldn't talk work 'out of the box'? Is it necessary to put the local hostname in /etc/hosts ?
