Is Skyrim’s Next DLC Called Hearthfire?

Bethesda parent company Zenimax has trademarked something called “Hearthfire,” prompting speculation that the listing relates to Skyrim’s next add-on.
Trademarked back in March, Hearthfire is described as "Computer game software for use with computers and video game consoles; downloadable computer game software offered via the internet and wireless devices."
Bethesda themselves do not comment on trademark filings, so there’s no official conformation, but the term does relate to The Elder Scrolls series. It’s the name of the ninth month in Tamriel, as well as a series of books in the 2920 series.
In addition to this, the third day of that month is something called Tales and Tallows, which is an unofficial holiday celebrating necromancy. Could Hearthfire relate to zombies?
We’ll have to wait and see. Just bear in mind that the trademark listing could pertain to the upcoming MMO, The Elder Scrolls Online. It may also relate to nothing of interest at all. Time will tell.
In the meantime, however, let’s speculate. How would you feel about an undead expansion for Skyrim?
