I think that Laurel's name Eudora (good or fortunate or happy gists, as
Philip says) is ironic, and perhaps Something Else.

Irony: Did she give Tom a fortunate gift when she arranged that his stories
should come true? Yes and no.

Something Else: I recall that the Erinyes (the Furies) are also called the
Eumenides (the Kindly Ones). This seems to be both an act of discretion
in the face of terrifying agents, and an attempt to get them to turn their
kindlier side toward one. If they have a kindlier side, of course.
